The dam that I posted the pic of is above the old road that crosses the stream on the lower section. It's above that camp site that has the HUGE white pine. The old dam has exposed valves, which I think are pretty cool. I love finding old stuff along these streams.

right. dam in wt2 image is at lowish elevation level. there are dams at similar low elevation levels on several small streams to the west. but most of them create much larger impoundments than the one on OP stream. have read that the dam that creates the biggest reservoir, several miles west, was built to supply water to mining firms.

a dam on the OP stream to help the tourist-destination stream to its east would have had to be at the top of the hill, not near the bottom. there was a trench between the streams.

here is an old snap of the tourist destination stream to east... not my picture :)

You didn't take that Bob?

Yeah, I know of the dam down low, and wt2's pic shows it. But up on the flat I think there was an old dam too. Memory may be fuzzy, maybe it was just a big rock with a short waterfall. But I remember deepish, brush filled depressions around it.

Not sure if it was considered "extreme" but I hit up some rough terrain brookie fishing on Thursday this week in Monroe County. Plunge pool after plunge pool loaded with natives. Any idea of what purpose the stone structure had in the one picture below? It was right next to the stream and fairly square in shape.

The most Extreme stream I've ever fished for nrookies was a place called Tamarack Run, you literally had to cast from the pool below over a ledge that was eye level to drpo a fly into the pool above you. The mountain was about an 80% incline.

A ajil for people who keep the names of streams on public land secret, even when they are posted on PFBC as 100% public and Class A with 196 kg/ht brook trout pops.

It's amazing to me that everyone thinks that this stream is so secret, it's on the WBTE list, and probably next to Kettle Creek is the next best stream on the list. Too many guys will ruin it though, with so many going and releasing the fish nearly every day. The chances of unintended mortality are very high for that stream.

I'd be hard pressed to call it "rough" terrain, too. Requires a bit of hiking, but it's an easy hike. Certainly compared to the OP.

The structure always looked like an old house or mill to me, but I certainly don't have any inside info.

Chaz, liking your quote. You gonna be at the jam?

I guess it depends on your perspective, while I don't consider it a tough hike in others may, because they don't do it that often.
I hiked in there twice in one afternoon, I hiked in and a tstorm came through so I got out of there, when it passed about a 1/2 hour later I went right back at it, boy the fishing was good that evening.

It's a fairly long hike, not a hard one...

Change of plans is taking me to MN for some brookie fishing there. So no I won't be there. That is subject to change, I could go for a day.
