Silver creek
Showed it to a friend who has a cabin fairly close last week. The water was dirty and very poor visibility. Not what I remember when I was there in January 4 years ago. Any explanations for this ?????

Big rain showers?

Silver Ck is refered to as a "mudhole" (it is very silty) but it can be clear at times.

I remember the "gauntlets" as always being murky, though you could still see the fish cruising. The water in between seemed to be somewhat clear.

Joe, just curious who refers to silver creek as a mudhole besides you.

By anglers that do not fish there.

It might've gotten a flush of silt from the hatchery portion, which was getting cleaned after stocking the last of the trout on station on Oct 1 and 2.

But like others have mentioned, it never gets crystal clear, always a little murky.

It may be referred to as a mud hole by some, but it's a fun mud hole in December thru February when everything else up here is frozen.
