I know from the forum that some lakes out in the east have flatheads; that seems odd to me. Flatheads aren't native to susquehanna watershed at all. Obviously the lower susky/skuke has excellent habitat for the flats- but how did they get there in the first place:0a36: Did the commission actually put the in? I get the feeling most fish commissions would rather stock alligators than flats- cause of the devastating effect on panfish! Was it sportsmen clubs (don't they have to get commission approval before putting in a potentially invasive fish)... No one has proved to me that any of the large lakes in the west have flats, so how did you guys get so lucky as to have established invasive flatheads stockingsoooh: while even fertile dams in the west- get the more ordinary channels?? I'm jealous in a way:angry:. I'm sure that shenango and pymy (to name two large western reservoirs) have a forage base and flathead habitat to equal any of those eastern reservoirs (that Do have the flatheads).
