North Fork Little Butte Creek


North Fork Little Butte CreekThe North Fork of Little Butte Creek is a small stream that originates at Fish Lake and meanders through a wet meadow, before crossing Forest Service Road 37 and plunging into a steep canyon. This stream is a favorite for beginning flyfishers or to take small children who are learning to fish with lures. The stream is packed with a large population of small brook trout that benefit from harvest. A well-maintained trail parallels the stream 0.5 miles from Forest Road 37 to Fish Lake Dam. Beavers, mink, songbirds, elk, and other wildlife are often visible along the streambanks.
