Later in the day, after leaving Swine Creek, we visited nearby Eagle Creek, where we were literally eaten alive by mosquitos, inspite of the repellent used earlier! Eagle Creek is a tributary of The Mahoning River and is very scenic for photographers who are looking for some easy access to water. This stream boasts heavy vegetation on both sides, also making it a canoers delight! This stream is part of the Ohio River drainage. Due to the mosquitos, we only stayed here for about an hour and netted some Rock Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Blackside Darters, Yellow Perch, Black Crappie, Bluegill, Sand Shiners, and Logperch. This stream flows out of the nearby Ravenna Arsenal, a 21,000 acre Army Ammunition facility, boasting many threatened species of animals.
