For those who love small streams, wild trout, and life...in their simplest form

Do you fish such places?
I fish small streams most of the time. Now these streams are sometimes tiny and even dry up in bad drought years. The last few weeks I have visited many of these tiny creeks most of them feed larger streams. While most of them are still barren of fish some of them will surprise me with a brook trout or two. But as a whole fishing these creeks is more a walk in the woods and that's not such a bad thing either. Creeks as this may have a draw to spawning trout in the fall but soon after that the trout return to the somewhat larger stream. Then there are a few who choose to stay within the tiny creek. My question is "why"...these creeks do not have the forage to hold trout, many times the cover is scant and yet they remain. I'm happy to see that there are trout in these creeks, for fishing for them can be enjoyable. Wild trout are not choosy what flies they take and you could fish one fly the whole outing.
In your travels do you find and fish such tiny creeks?
