Latest trip report: Paint Creek

2 - GOOD on 06/10/2008
Sulphur hatches have been the main activity with spinner falls occuring in the evening. Streamer fishing has also been good and nymph fishing remains excellent. (06/10/08 by baetis)

Latest description: Paint Creek

Paint Creek is Southeast Michigan's only designated trout stream. This creek is actually the size of a small river and it offers plenty of great fishing opportunities. This coldwater creek is home to both brown and rainbow trout. Paint Creek offers anglers the feel of being on an "up north" spring creek while being just miles from the nearest city. The creek contains plenty of riffles and runs that trout like to hide out in. The Paint also has alot of woody debris and over-hanging vegetation that trout love. The woody debris and surrounding vegetation often makes Paint Creek difficult for the beginning fly fisherman. To effectively fish the creek a shorter rod is recommended. Throughout the year Paint Creek receives various hatches including several different caddis species, mayflies, and even some stoneflies. The creek also has a great ant "hatch" in the later part of the season. Paint Creek is a great fishery for anyone that wants to catch trout close to home.
