Black Earth Creek, Dane County, 09/29/08

Page 35 on your DeLorme Map. You reach this access point on Route 14 between Scherbel road and the town of Black Earth. Park at the lot and take a quick and well-groomed grass road, which doubles as a farmer's artery to the highway. There is a handy cement slab that spans the creek and makes a nice perch from which to cast.

On the morning I visited, there was a misty rain the whole time. The creek was swollen and moving fast. It was surprisingly clear. There was some surface feeding on a slight #16 BWO hatch.
