Pine Creek is stocked with French Creek strain fingerling brown trout annually. A Wisconsin strain brook trout was introduced in 2006 and again in 2009 and 2010. Sampling results in 2010 indicate good survival of brook trout with natural reproduction occurring. Brown trout reproduction has not been documented and population is maintained by annual stocking of French Creek strain brown trout fingerlings. There were 292 brown trout per mile with fish up to 11 inches and 317 brook trout per mile with fish up to 10 inches collected. This is not an estimated population and actual trout numbers will be higher. Brown trout are most abundant in the lower 1.5 miles of stream. Brook trout reproduction is occurring in the upstream 1 mile of the stream. Pine Creek WMA offers excellent hiking opportunities with fair shoreline access to the fishery. Primitive camping is available on the wildlife management area.(2012)

Some limitations may apply for young children and pregnant women. Here’s a Fish Consumption Fact Sheet from the Iowa DNR and the Iowa Dept. of Public Health for more information. Here is a list of current fish consumption advisories for Iowa lakes and rivers.
