All the other responses are right on as to the difficulty wading Abram's Creek. The rock in the stream bed comes up at an angle and is slicker than an oiled banana peel.
You might try Anthony's Creek or the spring creek section that feeds into Abram's at the trail head. Instead of crossing the bridge and walking toward Abram's Falls, you take a right and follow the creek. This section has smaller fish, but also a sandy versus rocky bottom. It has a trail so access is fairly easy as well. Just keep an eye open for snakes. I have seen a few banded water snakes along the creek in this direction. They are harmless but can be ill tempered
