Elk Creek State Public Fishing Area has some great trout fishing! It is also home to the Elk Creek Trout Stamp & Sports Fish Restoration Project, which was initiated as a cooperative effort on the part of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and the Ojibleau Chapter of Trout Unlimited. “It started in 2000 and had been originally planned as a two-year project; however, with the availability of the trout crew and surplus funds from other projects the entire 2,430 feet was completed in just two months. Record rainfall for this period (9 in. over normal) slowed the effort and added expense. 2,110 tons of granite riprap and 1,371 cubic yards of fieldstone were used to complete construction. All disturbed areas were seeded and mulched throughout the stream thread. Surveys show that trout over 12 inches inhabit this stream. This project will significantly increase the number of adult fish in Elk Creek.”: (Expenditures of Inland Waters Trout Stamp Revenues Administrative Report 52 2003,16)
Elk Creek Trout Stamp & Sports Fish Restoration Project is located
right across the street from 3687 20th Street Elk Mound, WI.
