Leggett Creek, Grant County, 06/17/08

Page 25, A6 on your DeLorme Map. Leggett and its twin, Newell Creek empty into the Platte River, which in turn empties into the Mississippi just west of Dickeyville. The section of Leggett I visited was private property, just south of Weinbrenner Road. Finding no person to ask for permission to fish the stream, I did not do so.

The section I visited was swollen with floodwaters, but was still running clear and pretty. It was bordered by a horse pasture as you see in the photos. After visiting Leggett, I drove east on Wienbrenner and found Newell to be poorly taken care-of.
