Eighteenmile Creek is one of many pretty little trout streams in the forests of northern Wisconsin, and I have a soft spot for it because it's where I really got started trout fishing as a teenager during family vacations to a nearby lake from Missouri.
The fish were small, but feisty and colorful, and they were trout, which made them better than all the fish I had ever caught before. Things kind of spiraled out of control from there...

This beaver dam blocks fish movement in a small brookie stream. Luckily the DNR seems to regularly remove the dams in this stretch, but the beavers just keep on rebuilding.

A peculiar mayfly nymph clings to a log. I'm not sure if it's a Heptageniid clinger or a flat-bodied Ephemerellid crawler, but I don't believe it's a species I've collected yet.In this picture: Insect Order Ephemeroptera (Mayflies).
