Fishery areas rarely hold any interest for us. Usually, they’re a small lot, then a short trail to a body of water. After driving by Six Mile Creek Fishery Area for nearly two decades, we were completely floored to find this vast and gorgeous natural space so close to home! The well groomed trails lead through native prairie, over the creek, by eagle’s nests, and past a few farms with horse stables. It’s an absolute gem, and virtually unknown. If you feel like a longer stretch of the legs, follow a trail to Highway M. On the other side is a short trail and bridge which will take you into Governor Nelson State Park.
