Paint Creek, Lake Orion, Oakland County, August 4

Time: 6:30-9:15 pm

Temp: 70 degrees or so.

Weather: Clear.

Water: mid-70s

Tried to find a couple of holes in the upper region of Paint Creek, from the park in Lake Orion to Clarkston road.  Basically every hole had tons of small gills.
The water was very low, most places were only a few inches deep to maybe a foot.  I did manage to find one hole that was about three and a half feet deep, and  I managed to pull out a couple of small bluegills and four small browns using worms and slugs.

Tomorrow my plan is to check out Paint Creek closer to Rochester and maybe the Clinton River.
