RE: Hicks run
I park at the gate and walk up the west branch, probably three miles. Past the old turkey pens. Up to an old beaver dam. Fish all the way down, never see another guy. Most of the fish I catch are like the one on your avatar, tho. Occasionally, you'll get a 8-9 inch brookie, which is a trophy for there, prettier than any pellethead that ever lived. I dont think I ever make it downstream to where the stocking begins.
