Pouring from the side of a hill, this stream slices through 6 miles of Allegany State Park before feeding Red House Lake. Along the way, beavers dam it countless times, prompting one old-timer to quip, “This creek looks like a string of shimmering jewels running through the woods.” The state annually stocks roughly 2,500 brook trout averaging 9.5 inches and about 800 9-inch rainbow trout. Since the stream runs alongside a road for much of its length, most of the fish are taken in the first couple months of the season on worms and minnows. And that’s good because in summer the numerous beaver ponds warm the flow to temperatures inhospitable to trout. Still, enough fish are left over to provide summer pickings for energetic fly fishers willing to walk the creek in search of spring holes and shaded pools. Key species: Brook trout and rainbow trout
