    I probably spelled it wrong, since i can't spell but o well.

    Me and the girl planned a fishing trip for the creek tomorrow, and we were wondering if anyone has fished anywhere in it yet recently.

    Also wondering if you all think the cattin will be good in the creek.


    But, i will post back with our report tomorrow :D

    Wow, lets hope some of those ventured up the creek to spawn or find a nice meal.

    Fished the stretch of Pigeon Creek off Stringtown Road and up Diamond Ave towards Mill rd back in my younger days. Yellow bullheads, carp, buffalo, drum, and small saugers were usual catches.

    That was in the mid 80's and I can imagine the water isn't as clean as back in the day.:wink::smile2:

    I caught the blue in the river, not in the creek but right at the mouth of it.
