I have always been curious about trying the hike into the headwaters of Deep Creek. Would like to try it once before I get much older, probably a day trip just to get a feel of the area before I jumped into anything more serious. Sounds like the last stretch uphill is a bear. Do you think a day trip is feasible to get a few hours of fishing in before darkness sets in? I have looked at that drainage too many times from the road, and would to get a closer look in the near future.
