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. From Eighteenmile Creek in Wisconsin.

This is my favorite underwater picture so far. It shows a bunch of Simuliidae (black fly) larvae clinging to a rock and swinging in the fast current. There are also at least four visible mayfly nymphs, probably in the family Baetidae.  In this picture: True Fly Family Simuliidae (Black Flies) and Mayfly Family Baetidae (Blue-Winged Olives).
