Description of Water

The Barren Fork Creek flows from County Road AD to its confluence with Sinking Creek. The stream itself flows through some private land is pretty tight quarters with close casts and small rods the order of the day. This stream is comparable in size to Mill Creek and Spring Creek, and the trout are also comparable in size. This stream is not for the faint of heart and you are chasing trout that have survived unmolested by progress for more than 100 years. If you fish this water, remember C&R is the order of the day.
