Trout fishing opportunities on the namesake of this state forest have been called outstanding. Some portions of the banks of the East Branch Fish Creek are gentle with an occasional outwash from the confluences of entering streams, while others have precipitous drops from overhanging cliffs cut by the path of this free-flowing stream. In some areas the stream channel even has a braided appearance. Brown trout, rainbow trout, brook trout and Atlantic salmon can all be found in the East Branch Fish Creek.
Experienced fly angler who knows Fish Creek, Point Rock Creek and the Salmon River really well.
