Fancy Creek

Recommended Posts

When I was going to school at KSU (a long time ago) .... we'd drive up to Fancy Creek (at least I think it was Fancy Creek :rolleyes:) in April and fish for Whites. We'd wade the creek and throw road runners and crappie jigs. We caught some very nice whites and crappies. Is there still a white bass run up there? and is there still public creek access? Just wondering if anybody out there on the forum might have some insight on this. PC

I'm a KSU alum and used to fish that area a little bit. It's been over 15 years since I've fished it so I couldn't tell you for sure what it's like now. I do know that you can access it from both sides of the bridge. Rocky Ford can get hot for whites if you hit it right.

I live north of Perry Lake along the Delaware river and it gets a really nice and consistent run for whites and sauger in the spring. I haven't been out yet this year, but it should be starting to happen about now. There are also a few smaller tributaries of the Delaware that are fun to fish for whites.

TJ .... Thanks for the info. Yep .... we used to fish Rocky Ford too but it was pretty inconsistent for us. We also caught some nice crappie on down from the tubes. I can remember catching some large whites up in Fancy Creek .... from what I can remember it was easy to wade and the fishing was great. It has been around 30 years since I fished that area though.

If you wouldn't mind sharing .... please send me a PM .... I'm interested in the smaller tributaries of the Delaware that you mentioned. Thanks PC
