Sucker Creek
Sucker Creek
On a crisp and sunny spring day, there's nothing better than spending time outdoors with family. Kids in tow, I hiked around one of the few coldwater streams in the region. Even though the primary source for the stream is groundwater, the water was high and brown, like most everything else in the region. No fish were spotted, not even a sucker. Pretty tough for anything to get through the maze of downed spruce and ash upstream except for a big brown beaver. This isn't really considered an angling stream even though this reach is designated, supplanted with hatchery raised pellet head browns. It is doubtful whether they last the summer, or if they migrate into nearby Detroit Lake and succumb to the appetite of Esox lucius. They don't call them water wolves for nothing.

  1. Good post. I did the same thing yesterday. Loaded up the 2 boys (4 and 2 yrs. old), The dog and the wife .. Gave my son a fly rod with fly line tied to the top eye of the rod (no reel) and for that matter decided to take the fly off too .. just put a small splitshot on the leader .. Had a blast and caught absolutely nothing! We all got bored of fishing after awhile anyway, and just looked for cool looking rocks.
