This creek traces its roots to the New York–Pennsylvania state line, flows west through scenic Allegany State Park, and feeds Quaker Lake. Each year the state stocks roughly 2,200 9-inch brook trout and about 850 rainbow trout averaging 9.5 inches. State fisheries biologist Joe Evans says its numerous beaver ponds warm the water early in the season, making the trout cooperative earlier than in most creeks. This, combined with easy accessibility, makes the stream a popular early-season magnet for locals, who quickly remove the majority of stockies with worms and minnows. Come summer, the trout that survived the spring campaign are scattered far and wide. Savvy veterans, they occupy cool runs and spring pools, providing challenging sport to ambitious anglers who walk the stream quietly while casting streamers and nymphs. Key species: Brook trout and rainbow trout
