Been fishing this creek the last two years. Im suprised at the vast array of fish located in this little creek. I have caught numerous legal smallies, numerous drum, sunfish, seen alot of carp, and seen people fishing for cats. I have been trying to land a northern but they either snap me off or spit it out right before I get them to dry ground. If I dont have alot of time to fish but I have the urge, I go here. Its about a 3 min drive from my house. I barely ever get skunked in this creek. I only use jigs and plastics.
Gonna give Johnson Creek a try soon, I have learned a few things by talking to old timers that have lived here. I know the suckers make a run pretty soon, looks like there are a few miles of the creek, I am going to wade and canoe the entire stretch and see what happens. Just curious if anyone else ever fishes the creek that the city was named after.
