Re: Spruce Run

Re: Spruce Run

OK, so no one on the other board responded, maybe here. Some work is happening to the Creek in Glen Gardner. Who is doing it and I hope it looks better than the start when they are done. Those large abutments are hideous. i doubt I'll hear from Rusty after the thrashing he got on NEFF :shock: , don...

Re: West Branch Flow from Reservoir to Drop to ZERO

I think it would do very little in any negative way as water temps are ideal this time of yr....Had they done something like this in the summer , it would be disastrous!!!

Would love to fish lordville when its under a G!!!

I often wondered if that stream along 523 had any fish in it. Chub and sunfishwater? Any smallies?

Re: invasive species

Well, just make sure to harvest any you catch. From what I can gather, Vietnamese folks here in the DC area do love to catch and eat them and consider them a delicacy. It seems that some of our native born anglers prefer to return them to the water as a game fish. The same thing happens with the fl...
