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.
Underwater photos from Mystery Creek # 19
Here's the stream bottom of a newly renovated artificial channel created by the Wisconsin DNR to restore the natural flow of a small stream that had previously been diverted through a series of shallow, water-warming old private hatchery ponds.
A small creek chub hides behind a rock under a cut bank.
There's a pretty nice brookie on the left here, probably 14 inches long.
The fresh spring water here is so clear it's hard to believe it's an underwater picture at all.
Here the trout are faded in the distance after rushing past me.
Even in the winter there's some green weed growth at the bottom of a healthy trout stream.
