Hay Creek has excellent water quality and has been designated a brook trout reserve stream by the Wisconsin DNR. Brook trout reserve streams are streams where brook trout will likely persist into the future given the current climatic projections. Reserve streams have healthy brook trout populations, strong groundwater input (modeled), and low catches of non-native salmonids. Reserve streams are given priority when it comes to easement acquisition, trout habitat improvement projects and native plantings that will provide future shading.
