Mauch Chunk Creek (Mountain of Bears Creek)

 

http://kathyruff1959.blogspot.com/2010_04_01_archive.html

Mauch Chunk Creek meaning “Mountain of Bears” in the Lenni Lenape Indian langue is located in Carbon County Pennsylvania. The town of Mauch Chunk, where the creek is located, was renamed Jim Thorpe in memory of a great Native American Olympian, Jim Thorpe. The creek enters into the Lehigh River in a wide and rocky opening known to the locals as the “Little Spruce Swamp.” These rocks above the connection to the Lehigh River created many pools and ponds within the creek. These pools were then able to become abundant in fish and game. Today many people use this creek as a fishing spot and it holds local fishing contests annually along the historic Switchback Trail adjoining the creek. The stream is stocked with many rainbow and brook trout for the contestants to catch.
