    Tuttle creek is under fished for cats , it is a great channel lake.The blues are small up to 15#or so.It does not have as good of bank access as some of the other lakes in Kansas and you must watch the wind as it gets ruff with a north or south wind.There is good flathead fishing also.

    There are lots of Flatheads in Tuttle. Like all lakes it takes time on the water to locate them.Fishing from a boat I would fish the tree line on the old river banks. The river below the dam down to rocky ford has been over fished. We are still see good numbers of flats but the size has gone way down, lots of fish up to 10 lbs.

    Dale, after reading your posts, I'm thinking about asking Jerald (Catfish Quiver) about making a trip with the Catoon to Tuttle, just to fish some different water for a change. I'll holler at you before we come up, get some locations from you. The timber along the old river channel souds good though.

    Jim give me a call any time, I will tell you what I know about Tuttle. With the high gas price I have been fishing the river more this year.
