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.
This pretty little early season brown trout saved me from getting skunked.
