I didn't fish Cotaco at all this season so I can't give you any current info on that. As for eating fish from there. Well, there is still an advisory for Huntsville Spring Branch & Indian Creek for smallmouth buffalo and largemouth buffalo for DDT. The advisory is for NO CONSUMPTION of these species. The advisory page was last updated in March of 2000.
As for me? I would not eat any fish from those areas, but I wouldn't think there is a problem eating fish from Cotaco. The source of the DDT was from in and around the arsenal, I think and not from the south side and Cotaco area. I could be wrong on all that, but I would eat crappie from Cotaco.
