Uncle Lee's Creek
It is just a small tributary flowing into the Pere Marquette River, but it has a lot of life in it. The creek is filled with brook trout, cray fish and minnows. In the fall sometimes the salmon make it up into the creek. These photos are just two of the many critters that inhabit the wilderness there along the Pere Marquette River. The salmon was one of many spawing in the creek this year. I caught three this year so far, such a wonderful meal. The Wood Turtle was not on the dinner plate, but she too was in the creek, along with a leach under the shell above her neck.
