My wife and I were cycling the Killbuck Valley last week and took a
detour over one of the bridges on Killbuck Creek. I was interested
to note that there were riffles and gradually graded banks at this
bridge. Most of the lower Killbuck is a deep, channelized, unwadable
ditch. This section has actual riffles and is wadable. I'm dying to
know what's in there. The lower Killbuck Valley is a series of
wetlands/swamps, many of which are still somewhat preserved from
draining and tilling. Mudminnows and bowfin are abundant in the
marshes. The upper Killbuck has a pretty good assemblage of darters
and typical stream fishes. I'm very curious to see what is in the
main channel of the lower creek. Anyway the location is at Township
Road 346 (T346) west of Rt 83, south of Holmesville, Holmes County
Ohio. If anyone wants to go check it out, please email me at I can arrange to go just about any time.
