I believe it runs entirely through private land.

Am curious about it though...

I fished it once several years ago because it was listed as a designated trout stream on my trout map from the 60's. I was hoping to find some secret treasure since it wasn't listed on the more recent trout maps. I fished it all the way from hwy 52 to where it meets the north branch of the root. There were very few decent spots for holding trout and I didn't catch any. I also poked sticks under banks and rocks etc to see if I could scare one out, but I never saw one either.

I had noticed that it was listed as a trout stream in the newest books also. I figured the DNR must have wanted to have more protection for that watershed.

yes i have fished it as well and the action was awesome on chubs. i couln't keep them off of my nymph. i believe that the name of the Creek is Kinney and i was told by a local that one man tried once for many years to manage it for trout and by the sounds of it his efforts were futal. I fished it from the spot it dumps into the Root and up stream about 4 miles of stream about 2 miles of road. and didn't even see a trout. The water was very clear and i could see to the bottom everywhere and i was very stealthy in my approach just hoping to see a trout. None were seen. i was hoping for the treasure as well, but none was found. Good luck to all those who venture and some excellent chub action. ike

Vearl Predmore used to go to my families church before he passed, he know we trout fished and talked of a time there were trout there. IN the 80's you could catch a trout or two where it dumps into the Root, but last time I was there the area had completely filled in with silt.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?
