Flat Creek and Snakes

Recommended Posts

I've heard stories that the Flat Creek area is full of water snakes - particularly Water Moccasin.  The lady that cuts my hair lives across from Flat Creek restaurant and has a slip in the dock across from the restaurant.  She will not even go down to the dock as she claims the area has snakes.  A friend told me that the Flat Creek access off Hwy EE and on down is full of poisonous snakes - boat loads.  I was over at Bridgeport today working on my duck boat so I drove over to EE.  It looks really nice but pretty narrow. 

Have any of you floated up there and/or fished up there or know about the snakes?  I imagine there are some deeper holes.

Biggest cottonmouth I've ever seen was coiled up on a rock in one of the little coves just north of Shell Knob ramp. I had the boat close to the bank and didn't see it but my brother in law did and was about sitting on my shoulders by the time he pointed it out to me. I've only ever seen a couple actual Water Moccasins since we don't have any in NE KS, just water snakes that everyone calls Moccasins, but this sucker was huge and the thickest snake I've ever seen. Wasn't any mistaken him for what he was, crazy how well it was blending in with the rocks.

This thread should be locked immediately, removed from the forum and then bleach bitted from history as if it never existed in the first place!

There is no possible upside to this conversation and it is destined to end very, very badly.

I'm fighting a terrible cold and don't feel very good and obviously do not have the strength nor energy to fight off mental snake images!

And don't think I don't know that some of you (you know who you are Snagged and friends) are already digging thru your extensive archives of snake videos in a vile attempt to yet again push me over the edge!

🙈🙉🙊🧨😬😖

We fished way back into Flat Creek on Wednesday and saw quite a few snakes.  3 that we could definitely say were cottonmouths.  There was no mistaking what they were.  I can honestly say that this year I've seen way more snakes on Table Rock than I ever have in 22 years of living in this area.  Not sure what that's all about, but I'm not swimming there anytime soon.

Flat Creek has  always had a few more cottonmouths than average but not enough to deter any recreation  activities,  There are snakes everywhere,  I've seen fewer snakes this year than normal it seems to me.

Aww.  That's beautiful......🐣🌈🎈

I've always been a sucker for touchy, feely, sensitive stuff......

Puts me in touch with my inner female I guess. 💃

Now, if you're just sitting there waiting for me to respond so you can followup with a video of an eight foot rattlesnake eating those birds off of the table then me and you is D-U-N DUN!

Nope, just hand feeding birds.  RELAX.
