A day-trip on Ohio Creek truly defines the Epic Adventure for the intermediate angler. It is critical that anglers are prepared to battle excessive private water that is not well marked. Public areas along Ohio Creek are well marked and provide remarkable opportunities to explore a gorgeous small stream with spectacular scenery. Anglers can expect to find some better-than-average brook trout that can be really spooky of the angler’s shadow. Intermediate anglers will find a good combination of recognizable, easily fishable water while also having the opportunity to challenge themselves with some tight casting and small pockets. Fishing this area in Fall is simply spectacular and something that needs to be on your bucket list. The adventurous explorer can find a fantastic adventure in searching for the beaver ponds in the area. If an adventure and nice sized brookies are what you seek, Ohio Creek is the place for you.

Ohio Creek and the surrounding small creeks make up a bunch of places for you to find some excellent water.  Access is private land in the lower sections but once you get to national forest, things open up and there are rainbow and brook trout throughout the drainages.  Mill creek provides access to the upper west elk wilderness area and miles of small creek waters.  Ohio creek will allow you to drive a loop up and around back to crested butte giving you a great scenic drive with some fishing along the way.
