Your post got me to reminiscing about a creek that I played in as a kid
growing up in Akron. I lived next to Sand Run Park and spent many a day
knee deep in the creek (Sand Run?) that ran through the park. It flowed
down into the Cuyahoga. Has anyone done any collecting in that creek? I
remember the sand and gravel bottom and for the most part clear water even
in the early 70s. I don't remember seeing any fish in it but it had healthy
crayfish populations.
