This stream is managed under a "Catch and Release Brook Trout, Artificial lures only" regulation. Anglers must release all Brook Trout immediately. The stream supports naturally reproducing Brook Trout and Brown Trout populations.
South Pine is a small open stream in a narrow valley surrounded by prairie in the floodplain. Access to this stream is challenging. The only way to access this fishery is by walking from the parking lot on Spring Creek Road following the mowed trail about 1 mile to the stream. At the bottom of the first hill past the pond, follow the mowed path to the right. Primitive camping is allowed on the South Pine Creek Wildlife Management Area.(2022)
