While normally it can be dangerous to discuss creeks by name on the internet...

Pine has no brookies, it's a marginal stream.

Trout brook has brookies, very small. Stream probably under a lot of pressure.

I got my first brookie though from trout brook. You'll just have to go elsewhere to find a decent sized one.

There are a some. I think the population is small. IIRC the ratio for me is 10 to 1 brookies to browns.

Also, I would encourage catch and release on these streams as they seem to be pressured a great deal and they are not big streams. Maybe some day nice fish will come out of them.

I am not sure. These are very small streams. I doubt much of anything else. Perhaps some small chubs?

Roughfish, which Pine Creek are you referring to? There are a few in the upper midwest. I'm like Tom, I normally won't discuss specific streams on the internet, especially little streams. But I do know that Pine Creek's in MN and in WI both hold brookies. The one in MN has some brookies in the upper stretches, but in my opinion it's had better days. I've noticed the water quality and clarity have been reduced in the past decade. Lots of pastureland lower down that I'm sure adds sediment and warms the water some. The Pine in WI has had some TU improvement projects done on it in the last couple of years. You won't find any monsters here, but you'll definitely find brookies.

Trout Brook has a very small brown population. The brook runs into the Canon River, which has a variety of species for you to fish. The brookies in Trout Brook are on the small side.

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
