My name is Kevin O'Malley and I own the property referenced in this marker. Cherry Creek running upstream from the Lessig Lane Bridge for 0.3 miles. This is private property on both sides of the stream and I respectfully request you remove the post and all user comments. Anyone caught fishing illegally will be reported to the game commission. If the post is not removed I will have to take further action. You cannot direct others to trespass on private property. Here is the post I am referencing:

Marker Description: Cherry Creek is stacked with native browns and a few monster rainbows that cruise up from the fishing club below.

Pull off parking at bridge to access upstream, below is heavily signed no trespassing for the fishing club. The creek has a lot of overhanging brush and is surprisingly deep in spots. Many areas are slow, browns are thick wherever you find a riffle.

Cherry Creek is only ten feet across or less in most places in this area. Looks to have very little fishing pressure and browns are everywhere.

Fished w/ my Dad today. We caught three nice browns, my Dad caught a nice 15/16 inch wild brown with big fins. Water was clear and cold, fish were a little sluggish.

Fished today on Xmas Eve, missed a few rolls, had a nice mid sized fish in the 15 inch range close to the net that wrangled off, fish were sluggish and the water was very murky from the snow melt.

Caught one nice little brownie. See pic.

Fished for about 45 minutes this morning with a rapala and a cleo caught six trout, two rainbows 21 and 16 and four browns 12, 16, 17 and 18. Sick, sick and sicker. Unbelievable!

Beaver dam has moved up from the bridge a bit and probably sent the club fish upstream. If you are reading this you are too lucky, maybe you should add a post and support this crazy awesome project. Practice catch and release, this is too good to spoil. Check the video at "Big Trout in Little Creek" - http://youtu.be/e9kipO8GXU0 Enjoy Eagles, en mother fn joy.

Walked up from the bridge where there are no "No Trespassing" signs and spotted two trout over 16 inches in a log jam just above the bridge. Threw nymphs and dries of all types and sizes at them with no luck. Walked upstream and spooked many trout with no change in my luck. Turned around after only a 100 yards because I wanted to hit the lower Cherry Creek section running to the Delaware River.

Flows were up and the water was cold and crystal clear.

I was planning on fishing the Cherry closer to the Delaware to try for bigger fish. I had read that some big trout from the Delaware run up this Creek. But when I crossed over the creek, it looked so good, I doubled back from Cherry Valley Road to give it a try. It was very sad to see that there was a wire over the downstream side of the bridge with a bunch of no fishing signs. I went upstream to the no signed area. I was using a pink trout magnet and as I reeled in, I saw a flash the size of a frying pan. I switched to a No. 1 Mepps and on the first cast I hooked a whale, maybe the frying pan fish, who knows. Drag screamed; the fish leaped and it was footballish and huge, if I had lost it after the jump, I would have said it was 26 inches. Hooked the big gal nicely in the lip and flipped her off quickly. She was only about 22 - ha only 22, beautiful fish. Awesome fish.

I headed upstream with the spinner and caught 12 native browns from 3 inches to about 13 inches. Great fighters, great water. If I had brought my fly rod I could have caught many more. Didn't like metal all up in the the face of those trout.
