I paddled 2.25 miles upstream from Dilday Mill Access. Unfortunately, the stream was rather murky. I thought that might just be because the water usually is cloudier nearer a dammed up area. But even 2 miles upstream from the Dilday Mill dam there never was more than 1.5 foot visibility into the water. While the stream was relatively clear of obstructions it's banks had tons of old river detritus that has accumulated over the years. Very little wildlife was observed. Only one turtle was spotted and I only saw one fish make an appearance below the water. Speaking with some of the locals, they also confirmed the creek wasn't really noted for good fishing. Based on this section alone though, it could be a fun river to do for technical navigation purposes. Because the stream seemed to twist and turn around each bend. And the section above Fiddler's Ford Access appears to have this characteristic on Google maps.On a whim, I decided to explore a section of Turnback Creek to determine it's suitability and attractiveness for future floating and fishing.
