I know that you, I, and Turtle Creek Outfitters are all about deer hunting…….but hey, its spring and the Brookies are in. Besides our usual spring, deer stand work, the Toms are gobbling and the trout are in. I just had to post this impressionistic Brook Trout photo, plus a few more taken with the phone. Its incredible what great photos can be captured with a phone.
Brook Trout are the only native trout in much of the eastern USA. They require the coldest and cleanest oxygenated water of all midwest trout species, which usually includes Rainbows and Browns around here. Turtle Creek is generally a class 2 stream, however, we have class 1, spring fed tributaries that feed into Turtle Creek, therefore Turtle Creek is a class 1 stream in certain sections on our property.
