A place for you to post memories you or your family remember from camping at Fish Creek over the years, as well as any other items of historical nature. Photos would be great too!

Northern Pike Heads on Trees...

Postby d_s_144 » Tue Jun 04, 2019 1:40 pm

I remember the first drive to the site after checking-in as a child, and seeing Pike heads nailed to trees all along the ponds. I guess everyone must have kept everything they caught back then, because it was a very popular activity, a kind of trophy display to reflect on the weeks catch. I've caught tons of pike in USL, but I've never kept one to eat. Well, to be fair, I don't eat fish so I don't keep ANY fish I catch, they all live to fight another day. So, either people don't catch/keep many anymore, or the C&R approach to fishing has finally set in up there. Either way, a vivid memory from my many years on these ponds.

Happy Camping!!!
