Secret Revealed

Todd Creek is one of the last gold rich creeks in this area. Most people prospect between the road and the river, which can be good at times, but it is very popular. Secret: Go up above the falls. There is an old mine there. This area seems to be the source of the gold in Todd Creek, but it is very spotty. I picked four large nuggets out of the box after just 20 minutes of sluicing. The area can be accessed by going up the road to the east of the creek and cutting back across cross country and going up the hill. I am too old now to get up there so I'm giving away this secret to GPAA members. Good luck and maybe let me know how you did.

The rangers are currently enforcing a "hands and pans only" rule even though the rule was rescinded several years ago.
