The Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch, is a world-renowned animal sanctuary in Murchison, Texas that was founded in 1979 by author and animal advocate Cleveland Amory.

• Possess a CDL license.

• Provide proof of a negative TB titer.

• Pass a criminal background check.

• You will be trained in all aspects of your volunteer work.

Cedar Creek Lake Fishing Report from TPWD (Feb. 19)

Good. Water stained; 52-53 degrees, 0.37’ high. Largemouth bass are good on plastic worms, chatter baits, spinners, and jigs 5-10 feet in creeks. Hybrids and sand bass are in deeper waters from 24-45' relating to bait and can be caught vertically on shad imitations on jigheads. Crappie are still mostly deep 20-35’ome caught in 10-16 feet near docks and brush piles staging up for pre-spawn movements. Both minnows and jigs are effective right now. Catfish can be caught deep or shallow, Fresh cut gizzard shad, drum, carp, or bluegill are all excellent choices. Bigger bait is best for bigger fish.
