Not la rue creek it’s Jenkins park on Jenkins road. My favorite fishing spot ever. It’s a beautiful park with a dog park playground basketball and trails. Has 6 grass carp and 1 koi carp you can see easily. I found this place 1 year ago and I’ve caught so many bass here. It’s amazingly stocked with awesome fish. Please fish here
