    There have been flats caught just below Horshoe lake dam. There are several more areas down river but they are not accessible because of the fire that rolled through there a couple of years ago. The Forest Service shut down the access roads so that the vegitation can regrow.

    hmmm the only road that i know of is the one you take towards horshoe lake. There are a few spots before the lake that you can fish the river but never noticed a road that was closed off in that area. Iv only fish catfish point below the dam.

    Indian Springs Wash is the road back to the river , it's between the horseshoe entrance and bartlett , it's been closed for the past 3 yrs I think , I wish they would open it , I used to back there all the time, very nice for bass fishing and channel catfish , I never had much luck with the flathead up there , it's very remote if you have 4x4 to cross the river a couple of times.
