Old Carrice Creek bridge and road bed now exposed

Hwy 21 at Carrice Creek on Toledo Bend Lake looking East.


Looking West on Hwy 21 at Carrice Creek.

With the Toledo Bend lake level over 12′ below normal pool,

a lot of things that ‘went under’ are now being exposed.

The folks that live above the Carrice Creek Bridge are now trapped

and without access to the main lake.

When the screen on your graph looks like this, aw yea!

Those are fish and lots of them.

You are never sure what kind of fish until you drop your lure in the water.


first cast yields a bar fish.

and then a crappie.

I also caught black bass and small mouth bass in same area.

big bass biting on Toledo Bend

This was one of many big bass caught while fishing with some friends.

The largest was around eight pounds.

They caught several in the five to six pound range.

Toledo Bend is about 12 feet low.

It is difficult to find a boat ramp that is usable.
