I put in yesterday at the state park and fished within about 2-3 miles of the ramp mainly because I was wanting to run my boat for the first time in a while. Do any of yall run all the way out to the main lake or do you just fish the bayou?

Also, if I was going to run from the ramp to the main lake, what is the easiest way? Take the bayou channel all the way or hit the "government ditch" and cut through there?

Def cut thru gov ditch!! Once out of the ditch you'll get in the main channel and pass Johnson's and other places on your right and maybe 1.5 miles down you'll see a cutoff to your left (LL row) and once you go thru there you'll be on C row which runs the top of the lake.

Fishing should be good up at the state park on the main river as the current and spotted bass are fun. Lots of channel swings and docks to fish up that way. If you get to that small bridge with the big concrete seawall they were schooling there really well a month ago.

So you didn’t say how the fishing was FOR YOU! How was it? And yes Government Ditch will take you from Big Cypress Bayou right up to Uncertain into the “upper main lake”.

Thank you!! Bassmanrudy. That answered all my questions.

As for my fishing I caught 2 over 2lbs and several dinks on a rattle trap and a baby rapala rattl trap. They were all mud fat and spat up baby shad. I think they will really start tuning up with these cooler temps.

Nice fish, I Fish 4. Especially for a fly rod. Right down from the state park bream were smacking so hard I thought acorns were dropping. I was wishing I had fly or two with me then.

Well i went for a good long ride today. Went from State Park to the Big Lake Area. Luckily i was able to follow a nice couple that knew there way around. Only fished for about 45-1:00. Caught a 4lb bass and an 8lb opp.

Thank you guys for the guidance on taking the ditch the bayou would have been a long way around. I couldnt get over the lake though. I have fished a lot of water, but none that looked like that.

Glad you had fun! You should do the bayou way one day just for kicks. Lots of twists and turns and it can be a blast. 8lb opp prob felt like a Monster bass for a minute or 2 lol!!

Caddo is def one of the prettiest lakes out there.
