I went to lake stillhouse this past weekend. I ended up going up the river a ways and I saw an alligator and he was big too. Im thinking he was like 6ft. Has anybody else seen one in stillhouse?

No, but that is not the only one. A client of mine saw a 10 footer this spring. There have been a few through the years.

ok well ive been up the river a few times and didnt figure that there were any gators up there by the way the rest of the lake looks. I thought that it could have been turned loose there by someone. But i guess it pretty common for them to be seen there

Yep, I go kayaking there and see many other kayakers as well. I have yet to see one but hear about them all of the time.

Just remember, the one you saw didn't get there by traveling overland and he ain't confined to the river!

Yes, y'all are right on all accounts. A local vet. has a picture of a 7'er on a nest that was on his river frontage land. They have been there for years and I have known they were there. In my younger days I swam in the river now I just wade fish. No big issue just check shallow water with a stick before entering.

Shoot, they trapped a 6' gator at a little flood control lake in Sherman this past spring. You would think it gets too cold in the winter here in North Texas for an alligator to stay.
