I fish TC primarily from Stonebridge Dr all the way up to Exall Lake. Yesterday's catch was on a stretch south of Avondale. Great creek to fish, especially when it's running clear. Not so much after a heavy rain!

Were you down at Stonebridge? that's a cool little area. I've fished almost the entire creek where accessible. I dont mind when it rain's I've has success there too. they like to get up on the bank when it rains.

Stonebridge is a cool area, but for some reason I've never snagged a big one there. Thanks for the tip on fishing the banks after rain. I typically avoid the creek after decent rain, but I'll give it a try using your advice.

Are there channel cats or is it full of bullheads?

Ive caught cats, but they only tend to be in the areas of turtle creek that they have made into ponds. I've never seen any in the creek portion.

I know they are here - Turtle Creek (Pond Highland Park) - Google Maps

I love this little pond in Highland Park. Caught some really nice bass and catfish here.

I went out there on Sunday morning with my fly rod and some green poppers. Saw one small rise but no real action to speak of. Was probably a little too muddy due to the rain but this is a really nice spot.

Can confirm. The pond south of Exall lake is good. My son and I did ok from about 9am-12pm today.

Didn't have a scale, but this guy felt like a 2 to 3 lb-er. We caught a few others that were smaller, all LMB.



Edit: We hit the creek downstream first, but didn't see/feel anything but blue gill and other bait fish.

Where do you park near Stonebridge along Turtle Creek?


Skunked in several of the finest Texas lakes.
