fzwan_69 , There is gold in Scotts Run, no doubt . In some places it's very good .
However a few years ago, a certain gent went up there and trashed the creek pretty bad . There have been hard feelings towards prospectors there since .
Do not enter the reserve to prospect, you do so at your own risk . The rangers may not bother you, but they can confiscate all your stuff . Just ain't worth it .
Above the main bridge,and below the second bridge is private property .. That is where we used to dredge .Haven't been there in a couple years though .
I'm not gonna tell anyone that it is OK to prospect there . But if you do .
Bring a bar of soap,and a change of clothes, cause you will stink of sewage .
I would suggest you find somewhere else, but thats up to you .
Good lead up there though !
