I went up the creek about a 100 yards into it. Dont know where its coming from but it is very shallow and narrow. Might have to google map it to see where it really comes from.

Ok I did a serach and found that the creek is filter down from a power palnt or some sort of water treatment center by Lake of the hills. Then it filters down to Lake Scott then to the fox. I might have to do a little more exploring in the summer. Futher up the stretch it looks really interesting.

Judging from most of the winter reports I read the last few years concerning the Fox, creek mouths and discharge areas are consistentlly reported as two productive areas in the winter months. While they may have not produced in other seasons, I would definitly give it a try now. It seems that the crappies and gills love the slack water of the creek mouths and the walleyes and white bass are preferential to the discharge areas.
