Wildtrout2, That's a hatchery brookie. Notice the crinkled pectoral fin.

The last time I was at Hayes Creek, I also caught a hatchery brookie there. Which makes 3 people on this thread who have caught hatchery brookies there.

It's a supposedly unstocked stream. Are fish coming up from the river? Or are some local people doing a little stocking in the lower end?

Yes TB, I think you're right. Also, that brookie didn't really have the crisp, vivid colors of a native. As I mentioned, it's size also had me skeptical. As "wild" as the area is, I can only see them getting in there from the river.

Does anybody have any info as to what this little dam was for, or what it was a part of?

Perhaps a mill (esp if there are nearby ruins of buildings)?

I must be getting old! I think that I may have misnamed a group of pics, and have them titled Hayes/Black Creek, when in reality I think they're from Lick Run (Clinton). But that pic of the stocker brookie was from Hayes without a doubt. Memory does get foggy with time, and that's one of the reasons I take a lot of pics when I'm streamside. lol

I think that there is a way to mine the information from your pictures, such as date and possibly location, but I'm not sure of the technology involved. I'm not inclined to think the brookies migrated up from the river unless they were stocked close to the confluence.

I'm pretty sure that dam is not on Lick Run either.

Maybe Hickory Run above Rt. 504?
There are a bunch of remains of old dams there. I think I read somewhere that they were from sawmills.

Usually hovering over a pic will tell you when it was taken, but if it doesn't right click on the image and then click properties, that gives you important details.
I've caught some stocked brookies in Hayes/Black Creek on a couple of trips. Must be coming from either the river or someplace upstream where some club stocks.

It's time to stop stocking all wild trout streams no matter what Classification they are, and time to eradicate brown trout in some of our limestone streams and re-establish brookies in them.
