I have only caught channels out of there. Only heard of channels being caught there. I have come to the conclusion that there is only channels in that lake.

east fork has some nice flatheads in it, it even has some blues(someone put them there) but i wouldn't bother fishing EF when the ohio is right there. but if your going to try EF i would go to one of the big creek arms, probably the fork side and fish one of the points

This is DA KING'S home lake. There are PLENTY of flatheads in the lake and especially up the river by the campgrounds. I know personally of a fellow who has taken a fifty pounder about every year....Just last week a friend of mine caught a 28 pound blue cat in the lake. They are in there....in the very deep waters right now, in the channel, but you need a boat to drift fish for these critters. Flatheads are a diffrent story. Many areas can be had for bank fishing for them. It's tough sometimes to get to a certain area, but well worth it...... THE CATKING !!!
