I vote this the thread of the year! Since no body but me has anything useful to add, here's some more trivia.

First the bad news. This place is filthier than Michael Moore's underpants.

Trail Creek also has significant mercury and Polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) contamination.[3] The Indiana Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) 2010 fish consumption advisory listed brown trout, carp, rock bass, smallmouth bass and walleye as group 3 or 4 (limit consumption to one meal every 1 to 2 months), with all other fish species limited to one meal per week unless a child or pregnant woman.[6]

Now the good news. There is gambling nearby and you can expect to catch record sized fish there, some big enough to warrant another beach closeing should it's carcass wash up ashore.

Trail Creek is a designated trout and salmon stream, and supports one of the few remaining cold water fisheries in Indiana. In the early 1970s the Indiana Department of Natural Resources began stocking Trail Creek with Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha), Coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch), Skamania summer-run and winter-run steelhead (Oncorhynchus mykiss). As of the end of 2010 Trail Creek had produced the Indiana state record Chinook salmon (caught by Rich Baker in 1980 and weighed 38 pounds) and the state record Steelhead Trout (caught by Evan Nicholson in 1999 and weighing 26.62 pounds).[8] The creek also had the state record Brown trout (Salmo trutta) (caught in 1999 by Steven Bay and weighing 24.18 pounds) until 2006 when a larger one (26.06 pounds) was caught in Lake Michigan itself. Trail Creek also supports other native game and non-game fish species.

You better watch what you say. Evryone knows my fish eat your fish for appertizers before foraging for their real meals.

Read the Zombie Fish Chronicles. You will learn things you thought you never knew.
