    I have heard of a few flats coming from there but I myself have never fished it. I would say there are some nice channels there.

    A friend of mine did the electrofishing there all last year on the entire Twin Creek watershed for the OEPA and I have all the data sheets and can tell you only 3 flatties were taken in the last 1.5 miles of the river before it empties and 2 of those were at the mouth station. as far as channels go, the highest they took one was below the spillway, none above it. All the channels were typical stream channels like less then 4-5 lbs but a fair amount of them. I should also tell you that the electrofishing units are not very good at pulling up fish deeper then about 5 ft deep so take that with a grain of salt. Other then that the stream ranks as one of the states highes level for fish diversity and cleanliness.

    I flyfish it often above the dam for smallies and rock bass

    I was referring to the earthen dam that Twin Creek runs through. there is a 3 tier stepping spillway there like all the MCD dams.
