Beaver Creek, located in Madison County, is a small-to-medium sized stream near the Hamlet of Brookfield. Beaver Creek is part of the 3,484 acre Beaver Creek State Forest.
Approximately three publicly accessible miles of Beaver Creek flows through Beaver Creek State Forest along the Fair Grounds Road. There are no Public Fishing Rights (PFR's) along Beaver Creek. Access is open by owners; sections of streams posted against fishing by landowners are not stocked with trout by the state. Stocked sections without PFR are open to fishing by willing landowners. Respect their property or risk losing public access to these streams.
Brown trout, brook trout, and white sucker.
