McMichael Creek

One goal I had was to explore new water this year especially different delayed harvest sections. Was looking online and seen that McMichael creek in Monroe County seems like a big creek with a lot of different areas. I was wondering if anyone ever fished it and how crowded the area gets. Was wondering mainly what the upper and lower limits of the delayed harvest vs regular sections were so I do not cross over lines while fishing. Thank you in advance.

I have never fished that creek.

I got the following from the summary of regulations on the PAF&BC website:

McMichaels Creek 1.66 miles; from a point 0.71 miles downstream of the bridge on Turkey Hill Road (T-416) downstream to Glen Brook Road SR 2004 bridge

The lower limit is pretty well defined, the Glen Brook Road bridge. The upper limit is a little iffier, but special regulation sections are usually pretty well marked. There might even be a cable across the upper end clearly marking the boundary.

Good luck.

You find McMichaels to be a pretty crowded stream right around opening day but like you said, it's a LONG stream with a lot of stocked water so getting away from people after the opening weekend is pretty easy. There is exceptional water quality in that stream so trout hills pretty well though a large part of the year. There a smattering of wild fish throughout it's length. To me the DH section is a bit BLAH. I'd just be exploring the open sections. Less pressure after mid May there and still fish around.
