Pourhouse Creek might be one of the best of the three smalls streams in downtown Sturat. It is by far not the largest stream in the world, but it at least looks like a stream that will hold trout, and one that is easily fishable. There are tons of pull off spots, so you don’t have to worry about having your car hit, and there are very few no trespassing signs on this creek.


As far as the creek is concerned, it is freestone/sandy bottom stream-with  deep holes, long flats and big rocks/structures that trout can hold up behind. I would fish this creek using fast sinking nymphs and let them drift through these deep holes, that or use streamers and fish above the hole. Over all Pourhouse is decent at best, but still not worth the drive if you do not live in the local area.
