    I haven't fished the Southern part of Oklahoma, so I can't help you out there?

    I'm sure there's someone around here that can help you out.

    Good luck on your fishing trip.

    I believe McGee Creek is more known for bass than cats. If your after flatheads, and live in Paris, go to Hugo Lake. It is supposedly one of the best flathead areas in SE Oklahoma.

    Mcgee creek is an awesome trophy bass lake. But the once high mercury levels is what keeps most folks from going out there. they do say the fish are safe to eat now though :)

    I really doubt its a flathead lake. Good luck on your search...... iffin ya had said blues I might have had some info for ya :)
