I can't believe Token Creek is on here. I live close to it. According to the dnr reports, over 4500 3-5 inch brook trout have been stocked in the creek over the last ten years. Yes 4500. Also in 2010 and 2011 a total of 50 adult brook trout in the 14 inch range have been stocked. This is all in the creek not the pond. I have fished the creek by the ponds and never had a bite. I have seen hundreds of suckers in the spring upstream from the ponds. When they removed the dam and restored the creek from the ponds to the actual springs, sinkholes developed and there are now warning signs that say beware you might get swallowed up at the springs. This area of the creek runs clear and doesn't look horrible. I have gone out several times on summer evenings to look for trout dimpling and have never seen a riser. If there was any population of trout in this stream you would think it would be up in this area. Now if you head west from town and take the little dirt path just after the last house on the south side of hwy 19 there is a pond that is fed by a feeder and it also feeds token creek. I have caught trout by the inlet pipe of that pond. A couple of 8 inch browns that were not stockers. A friend caught a big rainbow in Token Creek back in there maybe 15 years ago.
2002- 1000 4.9 inches, 2005 1000 5.5 inches, 2006 750 5.2 inches, 2007 263 3.5 inches, 2008 500 5.7 inches, 2009 500 4.4 inches, 2010 25 14 inches, 2011 25 13.2 inches, 2011 500 4.6 inches I personally think that if they indeed put this many fish in Token Creek someone would be catching them. I have fished everywhere there is access except for downstream of the park pond. I have walked alot and its a pain to walk but have never seen fish. I wish they had put those fish somewhere where they had a chance of surviving and where someone would actually fish for them.
I just thought about it and there are only about 3 miles of trout water on Token Creek. Where have all those fish gone ? All of them brook trout !
