About "Mystery Creeks": I love small streams, but some of my favorite little trout streams are too small and too fragile to publicize here. If you recognize one of these, you already understand why I'm keeping it a secret. These are the kinds of places that lose a little bit of their charm if you see someone else's week-old footprint, and I don't want to do that to them.

This is my favorite picture of this school of brookies. Notice there are a few other fish mixed in, minnow family mostly. Near the bottom right there's a really big brookie. These trout were densely schooled up near a major spring source during the dead of winter. From the Mystery Creek # 19 in Wisconsin.

I was able to photograph these young yearling brook trout from a distance in the crystal clear water of a small spring.  When I tried to get closer, they all hid in the lush vegetation. From Mystery Creek # 19 in Wisconsin.

Several brookies gather in a warm tributary to a trout stream in the winter.  This is the same location as many of the other brookie school photos on this site, but it's a couple generations later. From Mystery Creek # 19 in Wisconsin.

Videos from Mystery Creek # 19

Winter trout at a spring creek's mouth
In mid-January I visited a spot where a heavily spring-fed tributary feeds into a river without much as much spring flow, creating an area of (in the winter) warmer water where hundreds of brookies were stacked up.

The video quality's as lousy as in all my early videos, but it's still amazing to see so many brook trout in such a small spot.
