Enjoyed hearing of your experience hiking down the Black. I made the descent down the Blue Creek as posted by BenJohnson. It is a tributary of the Black. Was unable to follow it all the way to the canyon-ran out of daylight. The fishing was fantastic with 90% of the catch being rainbows with an occasional Brookie thrown in. It is a narrow canyon with heavy brush on the banks. The creek is wide enough in most places that the heavy brush is no obstacle.
