The parcels typically mix stream stretches with adjoining riparian corridors that grade from a wet margin of jewelweed, aster, and reed canary grass into shrub, then sparse woodlot, then pasture or cultivated crop. The corridor alternates from open to partially canopied. There are small pockets of low lying sedge and wetland. The stream is a Class 1 coldwater fishery characterized by high gradient, coarse substrates, with much meandering and pleasant riffle – pool sequences. The Black Earth Creek Fishery Area is managed for stream restoration, trout habitat, and public access. (Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources)
