Those streams do get warm in the lower ends. I took temps of 78F on both the East and West Branch, just above their confluence. And a temp of 80F on Spring Creek. And this was not at the worst of times. During severe weather conditions the temps would surely be warmer.

I saw lots of minnows in Millstone Creek. Streams that are highly acidified do not have any minnows.

FWIW -

I've fished the lower part of millstone creek a couple times - just the last half mile above it's junction with the clarion. This was during the last 3 years now.
And I caught mostly, what appeared to be recently stocked fish. And I got the feeling that it was a put and take fishery - in that section anyway.
However, I also caught the largest tiger trout I've ever seen there. It was a beautifully colored fish of almost 16 inches in length.
I figured it had to have either held over in the creek, or swam up from the clarion

Dry fly guy, was there a chance that Tiger Trout was wild?

I really doubt it. I didn't have my camera with me, but I remember it being very chunky with somewhat rounded fins.
But the colors were so nice, I figured it wasn't likely that it was recently stocked either

The reason I asked is because I was told by a fish commission officer that they haven't stocked them in a long time, but there is a lot of private stocking in that area.

Anyone fishing this area this weekend? Depending on the water levels and fishermen, I plan on fishing SC Saturday morning.
