Fly fishing is the best method of angling in Trout Creek, although all methods will catch fish early in the season. Brook trout are generally small due to overpopulation in the stream. However, fish as large as 13-14 inches have been caught. Rainbow/redband trout are also present in this stream. There are unimproved campsites and flat areas adjacent to the stream for those who wish to camp out.
