That sounds like a great creek. Here in the Ozarks we are blessed with quite a few fisheries with nice variety- a pretty fair number of our trout waters also hold smallmouth and largemouth bass, along with panfish. There is one pool I am thinking of in particular on the Current River...It's further down than most people think of being good trout water, but where one spring dumps into the river, you can catch everything from rainbow and brown trout to smallmouth and largemouth bass, as well as pickerel, bluegill, rock bass, and who knows what all else. Some folks say they have even caught walleye from this stretch of river, although that is not something I have been able to confirm based on personal experience. It's a lot of fun having no idea what is going to take your fly on any given cast.
And then there is this one little river in the Adirondack foothills that I have come to know and love over my several trips there. This stretch of stream connects two very large natural lakes, but the river itself is actually pretty small, more like a large creek than a full blown river. The stream flows right through a town, and it's main feature is a good sized waterfall. Above the waterfall, the stream is slow moving, placid, and has very nice fishing for smallmouth bass, rock bass, and the usual assortment of panfish. Below the falls it is fast, rocky pocket water. There are still smallmouth bass, but the river also fishes well for a great variety of coldwater species. Rainbows, the occasional brown or brookie, and even landlocked salmon that run up the river in season. And the best part is that this stream hides in plain sight. It flows right through one of the Adirondack's good sized towns, but no one seems to see it as a serious fishery. I have heard that it gets fished some during the landlocked salmon run, but it pretty much gets left alone the rest of the year. I only came upon it when I crossed the stream while driving into the town to pick up some groceries. I pulled over to fish it on a whim, and in doing so discovered a very nice river that most people completely ignore.
