Headed to Palo Duro tomorrow and will be in Amarillo all weekend, will be smuggling a little fishing gear with me. So if I get a hall pass from the wife where might I find some crappie? Would have to be pretty close to Amarillo because that leash is going to be very short! Only thing I know about the panhandle is I-40 so any advice is welcome.

You are about 30 years too late for some awesome crappie fishing at Lake Meridith.

Your best and only bet is Greenbelt an hour southeast, North of clarendon. I've never fished it myself but hunt just south of there and have heard from people that they do catch crappie. Just don't have any details of how or where.

So it looks like I have a better chance of eating a 72 oz steak than catching a crappie, going to be a long 3 days

Yep, that is about how long it will take... roflmao

You might ask around and see if there are any private lakes, but I sure don't know...

When I lived in the Panhandle I would drive over to Lake Vincent in Oklahoma. Its just across the state line after Higgins. That would be about a 2+ hour drive from Amarillo. Lived up there for 46 years that is where I had the best luck. Sorry but that would be my choice. Greenbelt second. Good Luck

Mackenzie has/had a crappie house. I do not know if the drought has dried it out of the water. South of Amarillo near Silverton.
