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.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!
