The Little Mahoning

As it travels across the northern tier of Indiana County the Little Mahoning Creek offers scenes of great beauty. This high quality stream is known for its trout fishing and as the home of the Eastern Hellbender, a large aquatic salamander that can reach lengths of up to 24 inches. Hellbenders need clean, cool, well aerated streams with abundant rocks to survive. Protection of this stream is vital if the Hellbender can continue to live in our County for future generations to enjoy.
