McFalls Creek reminds me a lot like Purgatory Creek in the Montgomery County; a very small stream, that looks like nothing would live in. There are a few holes throughout McFalls Creek, but those are very few and far between. Sight fishing, using a very lite weight rod with a dry/dropper will be your best chance in the stocked portions of the creek.


I have heard from several reliable people that if you hike up to the shelter where the stream begins that there is some really good wild brook waters. This does not surprise me in the least, almost every stream in this area have some wild brook trout in them. However, because I am lazy and didn’t hike up to the shelter, I can neither confirm nor deny the existence of these wild brookies. Maybe one day I will take a day off and go up there. But it is hard to fish McFalls when North Creek is so close by.


Additional Notes: There are very few pull over spots, if you find one you better make sure that you are completely off the road. The road to McFalls Creek is a single lane dirt road, yet people (including myself) still speed up and down it.
