    the first thing about mill creek was the owner was very friendly and helpful. He didn't sell the s.c. license but he showed us were to get them. The rooms were very clean . the shower water was very hot .they had a fishing pier. we caught 2 fish off of it. with the fish being way out in the lake , i say we were luck to catch a couple. on thur. we went out at 7. If you live down there you know how foggy it was .our guide went right on though it. Gps !!! There was other guides and fishermen that were stuck on the bank, so i give him a AAAA+++++. He put us on fish as soon as we tied off .we fished the mine field and when the fog finally lifted we found outwhy they call it the mine field. There was stumps every where . we put 11 fish in the boat. we had 5 to break off . the other guys that went were trying to set the hook with circle hooks. that is a no no. so they lost alot of fish. I going back in april when the fish our in shallow water. we caught fish in 19 feet of water. I cann't mention our guides name but i going to use them again. I learned alot from them. Now i going to see if i can use that info. here in ky. see ya on the water Darryl

    yes , it is located off highway old six. very nice place to stay. it has everything a fisherman needs. it was 70 dollars for 2 rooms with a kitchenette.
