Gborg: I think fried gator is pretty good. I do not think Texoma or PK has any Gators. I think they do not like salt water. I could be wrong, but I've been in all the little creeks on PK and never saw any evidence of them. Audads, Pigs, Turkeys, deer and coyotes but no gaors. maybe Randy Wood or one of the PK guides would have seen gators in PK.

I have fished Lake Waxahachie for years. I`ve fished it from the main lake in my 18fter & as far west on S Prong Creek as fm66 behind where the "Scarborough Renaissance " (scarborough faire) area is located in an 8fter and have never seen a sign ,trail or hide nor hair of Mr. Wally Gator along it`s banks., and since Lake Waxahachie does not boast having the Tributary of the Trinity or any other river system supporting it I would have to emphatically say no to that notion. 2cents

Heck, even the Ag pond at SFA had one back in the 80's. Might have had a little help getting there though.

Bayou country! Much more probability of gators.

they are in the brazos up to Gbury and i wouldnt bet againt there being one in PK.
they are in the paluxy and in Squaw in numbers ,lake worth and eagle mountain. Pretty sure Aquilla has them

may only be one or 2 in some lakes but they are there.

35 years ago you never saw one east of dallas, now not that uncommon.
leave them alone and they will do the same even the big ones.

I've fished DFW for over 3 decades and I've heard the alligator question a lot in those 3 decades and I can tell you these 3 things.
1. I saw two small ones in 2010 in Marshall Creek in Grapevine both about 3 feet long, I don't know if they survive the
winter here or not but I saw those 2 for certain.
2. There are things in the lakes here you probably don't want to know about, I've seen things that I wish I hadn't.
3. If you don't believe #2, I took this from Texas Park and Wildlife site

Lake Fork, back of Little Caney, see them there all the time. Spoke to a man that lives on that part of the lake two years ago that counted over 20 baby alligators in one day, early summer.

Gators move around a lot. There's a news report of them in the Austin area every few years. TPWD's alligator expert was singularly unexcited by one that got into Lady Bird over the summer.

Here's a map of their range in TX:

I've been fishing the Trinity in the DFW area for a long...time...now and have seen gators several times. But it's always been a lone gator, have never seen more than 1. I'd say your odds of seeing one are much better on the main river than any of the lakes associated with the Trinity. But for sure...travel past Dallas south on the Trinity and your odds will go way up of seeing one.
