Strobs and I hit the HC yesterday morning. Creek is in good shape. Water is at normal levels, 78 and clear. We got our far share of smallies with a few rock bass thrown in. Most of the bass were caught on finesse plastics and micro cranks. A fun morning to say the least even though they were running on the small side. The exciting part of the morning came when I was walking around one of the deeper pools. I walked right up on a huge buck. He of course still had his velvet on his antlers. I tried to get a pick, but he wasn't interested in chatting with me. I thought why isn't it this easy in the fall!

Location: Not quite over the hill, but has a breathtaking view from the lofty perch.

How are the skeeters around the creek?

Surprisingly, not bad at all. I haven't had a need to spray down as long as I'm in the creek.

Since Hickory Creek wanders over 20 miles how about some rough locations? Above the pond, below the pond and some rough distances would help.

Start by going in Pilcher Park near Rt 30 n Briggs. Start in the middle of the park near the foot bridge and walk up stream! Check Here First. :) Good Luck!!

Sorry for the late post. There are also some good holes above Briggs as well. Just harder to find a good and safe place to park.
