Local trout streams and their locations

n Caldwell Creek: Flows through both Warren and Crawford counties from the Selkirk Bridge to Stony Hollow Run. It is a catch-and-release fly fishing area only. Check the regulations book for special rules applying here. Above Selkirk and below Stony Hollow Run offers normal trout fishing opportunities.

n Conneaut Creek: Runs through Dicksonburg to the Pennside area west of Route 18 for approximately 20 miles. Unknown to many, this stream offers anglers a good chance at catching some very large Lake Erie lake run rainbow trout. This stream flows through eastern Ohio and into Lake Erie at Conneaut, Ohio.

n Five Mile Creek: Is a small stream located at Spartansburg eventually flowing into the east branch of Oil Creek at Route 89.

n McLaughlin Creek: This little known stream flows into Thompson creek, about four miles northeast of Hydetown. Good bet for anglers seeking brook trout.

n Muddy Creek: Running through the village of Little Cooley, Muddy Creek offers diversified fishing.

n Oil Creek: One the area’s larger streams running through the Linconville-Titusville area. Oil Creek offers many miles of picturesque fishing opportunities for anglers.

n East Branch Oil Creek: Originates as the outflow of Clear Lake in Spartansburg and runs into Oil creek at Centerville.

n Pine Creek: A small very scenic stream running in the Grand Valley, Enterprise and Titusville areas. Should be a very good stream this year.

n Sugar Creek: Flows in the Townville area across Route 27.

n Little Sugar Creek: Flows through rolling farmlands in eastern Crawford County and empties into French Creek at Cochranton.

n Thompson Creek: Flows along Route 8 in Hydetown area.

n Woodcock Creek: Woodcock Creek is always a favorite among area anglers. It flows in the vicinity of the Lyona Church to Woodcock Dam and downstream to French Creek at Saegertown.
