Canoe Creek borders the Red House property. It is stocked in the spring. The trout are not fished out as in so many other places. Having an opportunity to walk out of your door and catch a trout in your yard is one of the charms of living here. I often take an hour in the evening to hit the creek and walk up or downstream fishing. Most of the time I catch a rainbow trout. This last time I caugth four rainbows and a native brook trout. While I usually catch and release, the trout pictured here swallowed the hook and I had to take him home. I missed another trout of the same size after catching this one.
