    The Scioto is a great river for flatheads and channels.

    For Flaties, Salt Fork is hard to beat for Resevors. River's - I like the Muskingum.

    Good Luck

    Flathead Man,

    I live in Cadiz. I am near all of these lakes, but Tappan is the closest. Don't take this the wrong way, because I am not trying to be a smart a**. Tappan is in Harrison county. People tend to believe that it is in Tuscarawas county, because it is so close to the border. I don't know if I will be able to make it to the catfish tournament or not. I have Tues. and Wed. off and have a heck of a time getting off on a Saturday. I would suggest that anyone that has a chance to fish one of the Cripple Creek tournaments do so. The fishing is great and the money payout ain't bad either :wink: . They have side bets on largest flathead and odd fish (e.g. carp, bass or whatever). Good fishing.

    i agree with what everyone has said so far, on the list of lakes.
