Anybody been fishing out there lately? Just watched the Honey Hole show from last October when he went out there. Never tried it even though its about an hour from the house. Kinda wonderin' if it's muddy like all the other lakes in the area?

Jacksboro is a pretty deep crystal clear lake if I remember. Been severa years since I've been out there.
Doubt it's as muddying a the metroplex lakes, but probably stained

Lake jacksboro looked clear when I drove by it two days ago, lost creek looked stained but not too bad. Again that was from the road looks can be deceiving

So Lake Jacksboro is the upper lake and Lost Creek the lower lake that has the airport right alongside it? I know there is a lot of timber submerged so is it safe to run at all?

And I know they aren't very big so is running much more than getting on plane even necessary to get anywhere?

Lake Jacksboro the upper lake is ok to run. Plenty of cover shallow too. Lost Creek the lower lake is usually the clearer of the two but not safe to run. Both ramps are free and easy to launch from. Good Luck

I could be wrong, but I'm about 100% sure lake jacksboro is the lake with the long water run way, the lower lake wth all the grass

You are correct. Lost Creek is the rocky lake with a fair amount of timber. It's the deeper of the 2. Lake Jacksboro is shallower and has a ton of shoreline grass etc. You cannot run from one to the other via on the water. You have to launch at each.
