I've fished the Deep Fork arm of Lake Eufaula for the last 15 years. When I started, catches of 12-15 blues were fairly routine, but I've watched things go downhill since then. There used to be shad by the thousands, carp all over the place, and even if the cats weren't biting, turtles and gar would run me ragged. All that has changed. I still catch a few cats, but other than that, the lake seems dead. The trotliners and juggers have abandoned it, too. I don't know if the rest of the lake has experienced this, or if it's just a localized problem, but in any case, it makes me sad.
