While on my one of my rides today, I crossed hickory creek which I have traced to lake lewisville. Has anyone fished this creek? Specifically the section between old Alton road and the lake its self.
Thanks,
The new guy

Nope, too afraid of the goatman.

In all seriousness although I've not bank fished it much it's worth checking out! Just park at the Old Alton bridge (if you can find a spot) and walk around to see what every is or isn't catching.

Nah just approach the bridge with your lights on and you supposed to be ok;)
With the water temps dipping and the lake up I wonder if the crappie will be that far up. I see some trails on google earth off 2499 nearer the lake may try that as the lake comes down.
Thanks tony, anyone else?

With the lake about 8-10 ft high and the amount of rain that we have had, I wouldnt expect much to be going on down there. I'm betting there is a large part of the parking area under water.

I stopped there three days ago. Parking area was fine, but water was very muddy.

Yeah but also after dark is when a ghost appears who has the body of a man of the head of a goat...



"Locally, the bridge is known as "Goatman's Bridge", due to a legendary demonic satyr of the same name, who is popularly believed to inhabit the forest surrounding the area.

Legend tells of a black goat farmer who moved his family to a residence just north of the bridge. A few years later, Oscar Washburn was known as a dependable and honest businessman. North Texans endearingly began to call him the Goatman. But the success of a black man was still unwelcome to many, and Klansmen in the local government turned to violence after he displayed a sign on Alton Bridge: "this way to the Goatman's".

In August 1938 Klansmen crossed the bridge and kidnapped Washburn from his family. They hung a noose on Old Alton Bridge and, after securing it around his neck, threw him over the side. When they looked down to see if he had died, the noose was empty. In a panic, they returned to his family home and slaughtered his wife and children.[2]

Locals warn that if you crossed the bridge at night without headlights, you will be met on the other side by the Goatman. Ghostly figures and strange lights are also reported in the surrounding woods. As well as visitors being touched, grabbed and having rocks thrown at them. This legend results in the area around Old Alton Bridge being popular with paranormal societies."

Crazy..... not scaring me though. Every town I've ever been to has a legendary goat man story. Kinda like the VW sized catfish below every lake's dam. Funny that wiki has that (legend) on there. We had a legendary goatman in the town I grew up in. Got to protect those good fishing spots. roflmao

Yeah that's a legitimate story. Seen a few different documentaries about. One of the ghost hunters groups on TV went out there a few years ago – they said they would never go back. Who knows...

I'm more worried about the idiot breaking into my car late night. Gone out there early morning to fish and 2 times parked next to a car that had been there all night and window was broken.

Water is over the banks in several places right now but they are dropping the lake level. Fishing can be good when the crappie come in and when the whites run. It has some small resident bass too. The trails will get you to a lot of decent spots but it's a hike.

I'll just ride my bike there and not worry about the car. Maybe on my next day off. I'm really interested to see if it's any good. The spots closer to the lake look good too. Just a little more water release should do it. My grapevine spots are still under water.
