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...

Light reflected from air bubbles left ghostly wisps in this fairly long exposure picture beneath a riffle.  It's got an accidental artistic look. From Eighteenmile Creek in Wisconsin.

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). From Eighteenmile Creek in Wisconsin.
