Amenities at Lansing Wildlife Area Creek include:
    Don't forget to purchase your trout fee for 2022. A lifetime trout fee will be available soon for the mature anglers. Winter trout fishing is a great time to enjoy exploring new streams and opportunities with fewer anglers present. Water clarity is excellent. Be prepared to blend into the background for wary fish.
    Brook Trout - Fair: Use midge, minnow, or leach patterns for fish looking to get more bang for their effort.
    Brown Trout - Fair: Fish near or around structure. Spinner or crank baits work well for this.
    Rainbow Trout - Fair: Rainbow Trout are colored up for the spawn. Hatchery hold overs remain in the stream teasing anglers. Use small spinner baits or hair jigs floating past structure.

    Access to this stream is challenging. It is very small and remote. Unfortunately in May 2009/2010, fingerling French Creek strain Brown Trout were stocked in the lower end of the stream and then in May 2012/2013 fingerling South Pine strain Brook Trout were stocked near the headwaters. 2017 sampling efforts determined the presence of a viable Brook Trout population genetically similar to its parent stock (South Pine). Brown Trout are currently being removed from this system to reduce competition for the brookies. No map is available for this stream.(2021)
