Buzz, I haven't done well there in several years. I have a picture of a really nice brown that my dad caught there. Have to ask him if I can post it. I used to be able to go up there and have a really enjoyable day. I used to also see fish in the creek all the way to the power house and even catch a few in some of the pools but, I can't even get a hit anymore. I haven't drug anything from Goat creek but, I have from First creek and it took around 7 hours. Yeah, there are some serious deer in that area but, the density is very low. If you see one there is a good chance it will be a "goodern".
