Lots of different fishing holes

Whiteman's Creek 1995 to the present

Whiteman’s Creek as an interesting tributary of the Grand River, for in its upper reaches, the creek is slow, muddy and warm. As it flows toward the mouth clean, cold water enters from underground aquifers, cooling and clearing the water for salmonids. The creek is a prolific steelhead nursery, plus it contains a small population of browns that get fat and happy on all of those steelhead babies. It may still have a vestige of its original brook trout population, though I’ve not heard of any being caught in a long while.




A logjam where the big browns hide. Drift a nymph underneath on and hang on!
