With the last core samples taken from Phantom its a wonder anyone ventures near that lake.The City opted out of dredging the lake due to the high amount of "toxic",the projected funding for clean up wouldn't cover 1/16th the cost of actual clean up to "ONLY HALF" of the projected goal. LOL!
Yeah I know Abilene(politics) as well as most every fishin hole worthy of the time within 50 miles.
Ive lived "on" Phantom for nearly 47 years if that tells you anything.(?)
jest my $.0¼
The quality of fish from Kirby is well above anything the North Mudhole can produce.
Most of my boat trips also have spray with a petro smell,cause its coming from the boat making the spray LOL!
Please dont try to smack a quality fishing hole such as Kirby,current lake records clearly prove the restocking efforts have paid off.The small lake is a West Texas legend for producing monster yellow cats and barndoor slabs.
Its an effluent Lake! They can give all the water quality reports they want, but the only time I was on it was for a boat test. The spray of the water smelled just like every sewer farm I have ever been around. No thanks on the fishing,Go to Ft.Phantom. Just my humble opinion, It`s right,but still just my humble opinion!
