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.
Landscape & scenery photos from Mystery Creek # 62
This little pool in update New York is enjoyed by many tourists every day, and it still holds a few trout -- stockers mostly, but you can't complain about the setting!
Many trout live in this pool, but they're very difficult to approach. The stream is very small and the pool unusually large, so the current is very slow. The trout have all the time in the world to inspect the fly, and they spook extremely easily.

Given their home on a mossy stump in the stream bed, these light orange ants probably end up in the stream from time to time.
