Marker Description: Mill Creek; artificials only with one trout 18" or over allowed in possession.

Mill Creek is very small. It flows through the Mark Twain National Forest and the Bohegian Conservation Area and has many wild rainbow trout in the 5-10" range. But you can catch the occasional 14 incher.

To get to Mill Creek, take Interstate 44 West from Rolla to the Doolittle/Newburg and head through Doolittle and Newburg on Highway across Little Piney Creek. Turn right on Highway P and then left to the Mill Creek Recreation Area on County Road 7550. This road will take you to good fishing area with increased trout numbers as you move away from the easily accessible water.

To get to the springs continue on and turn left on AA, turn left at the Pitts Pond sign and cross the bridge and park there where you'll see a large pond, which is fed by Wilkins Spring. Yelton Spring is upstream. The trout fishing begins at Yelton Spring and extends all the way down to Little Piney Creek, but the best water is below Wilkins Spring, which dumps the majority of the water into the creek. Fishing upstream of the bridge is not as good because Yelton Spring dries to a trickle in the summer months.
