Todd, thanks for a great day of fishing! You're a first rate guide.
A big thanks to Todd McGarvey for his participation in the Project Healing Waters outing this weekend on the Brookville Dam Tail waters. The time we spent with him was very entertaining, informative, and just plain enjoyable. I have fished with many professional guides, and Todd will rank as one of the best. He knows his stuff and has a great deal of patience. If you are after the opportunity to learn about the tail waters and probably catch some fish, this should be your guy. I hopefully I will find some time this fall during archery season to sneak in another trip with Todd myself. Thanks again sir.
Thanks Todd, for setting me up for the nice browns! Fishing was tough as no one else on the river was catching much, but you knew where the fish were hiding! Thanks for all the tips and coaching and I am glad to have you as my guide for the trip, highly recommended guide for anyone who wants to get that trophy brown or rainbow trout here in Brookville Indiana! Looking forward to fishing with you again soon!
nothing at this time.
The River is officially called the East Fork Whitewater River. It originates at the Brookville Dam and travels about 2.25 miles until it empties in the White Water River.
The Mad River fishes well for trout from Urbana to Zanesfield, Ohio.
