7.17- Fishing at Dawson's Creek

Folks were fishing on both banks and in the middle of Dawson's Creek this evening

The pier leading down to the Dawson's Creek beach under the bridge has been thoroughly repaired. (and yes, for my out-of-area visitors, this is the namesake of the TV show)

Unfortunately, it seems the creek itself is not in very great shape, as indicated by this signage posted around the popular water access site:

The warnings against swimming in the water did not seem to give pause to any of the dozen or so folks who were fishing around the Dawson's Creek bridge while I visited today:

I always thought that Dawson's Creek was only on the TV show...

I never knew there was an actual Dawson's Creek...

Dawson's Creek (TV show) was created by local-boy Kevin Williamson (Scream, I Know What You Did Last Summer, etc) and is supposedly based on his younger years growing up in and near here, Oriental, NC.

Oddly, the TV show took place in Massachusetts, and equally oddly, was largely filmed in western NC (not here on the water)

So, this is in fact THE Dawson's Creek!
