The road may be impassible after another year unless someone gets in there and grades out a really rough spot at the start of the hill. Which may not matter, because in another year The Creek may be renamed The Swamp. Very few places were even fishable, the first hole above the crossing is 2/3 full of cattails, and the banks are mostly two feet or more of floating mats of grass. We found some fish, only a few of normal size 7" to 9", most were very small. Either the larger fish are hiding under the mats of grass, or people have been spending the year catching and taking, leaving only the little guys.
Although we caught a reasonable number of fish, it is getting harder and harder to return to the creek. This may be my last time until a big flood cleans it out. Little Nunya is open year round and is closer for me. And it isn't overgrown.
