Mink Creek or Otskonoga, also known as Trout Brook, is a stream in northern Otsego County, New York. Its source is adjacent to US Route 20 just east of the community of Brighton and west-northwest of the Village of Richfield Springs and flows northeast into an unnamed swamp in adjacent Herkimer County. It then exits the swamp and flows south back into Otsego County before converging with Canadarago Lake south of Richfield Springs. The Iroquois' name for the creek is Otskonoga.
