Any sizable body of water in Texas on large feeder creeks or rivers will have a health population of flathead even without stocking. They're there and plenty of them.

Eat a flathead and you may never eat another blue or channel. Flats under 20 lbs are the best eatin there is. I have et them up to 40 lb but the 15-20 pounders are the best.
From Genesis: "And God promised men that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the earth."

Then He made the earth round...and He laughed and laughed and laughed!

You need not worry about depleting the population, if you catch one definitely keep it, best eating fish in fresh water, crappie 2nd.
