    I most certainly will be fishing for flatheads out there this year! Now that I'm moved back closer to there it won't be such a bad drive.

    I'm sure that I'm going to hit it a few times,it's only about 3 minutes from the house so it's kind of handy.Good luck to any other's that are going to wet a line there.

    The flats are a really good bet for cats. Across from the old golf course. Also the dam especially off the rocks. Some people have caught nice cats off the beach area but I've never had much luck there.

    Friday on the way home from work I saw a few people down there fishing the creek that feeds it from the south east. The water fall was going good and probably 60% the width of the small damn thats there. Was that anyone here, and did you have any luck?

    A strong rain flushes EVERYTHING out of there. Get there before the rain starts and you'll have much better luck.

    That place turns into the Colorado river when it rains hard.
