you don't fish Rayburn much then!

Audads, Pigs, Turkeys, deer and coyotes but no gaors. maybe Randy Wood or one of the PK guides would have seen gators in PK.

they handle saltwater just fine...ask anyone who's walked on water while wade fishing and had one come their way after a stringer of trout!

Surfside is about 10 minutes from my beach house. I know there’s a lot of rattle snakes. Didn’t know about a few gators. bolt

Guess I need to watch out when I’m flounder giggin’. loco_2

Yep, I’m with fishbonz here, I’ve fished that lake from the bank, in a pontoon and did the kayak thing up the Prong creek also-


Yo Steve, how ya been??? I have to disagree. I see no reason at all why there wouldn't be one, at least one passing through or just checking it out to see if it would be sustainable habitat. One could easily travel from the Trinity at RC, through RC and chambers creek, up through Bardwell, and on to Waxahachie. I've been up and down the creek there in an 8x4 bassbuster style boat with my dad and saw some things that make you wonder what else might be in there. Of course this was back over 30 years ago.

To the OP: Whether there is or isn't shouldn't deter you from enjoying the lake. Odds are you wouldn't see anything even if there was one there.

Yo Trent!
You are right, I should just said I haven’t seen a gator there, but I bet there are many other things I haven’t seen while I was there too.
But if I did It sure wouldn’t stop me from enjoying that creek or lake, it’s a near to me jewel-
