February 19, 2006 - SE PA Runoff

The graph to the right was clipped from the USGS site. Warm air temps, some rain, and lots of melting snow from last weekend's east coast strom swelled the streams and rivers here in SE PA on Friday. Now we have some of the coldest air of the season sitting over top of us. Actually on Thursday while attending the Corps Workshop up in the Pokies it was interesting to see the lack of snow up that way compared to SE PA.

Look for the little black stones to begin popping along with some olives, which usually begin to show in decent numbers around March 1. Of course midges are probably hatching on the warmer pools of your favorite trout water.

Somerset was a great! Fly Fish PA along with few others represented the Lehigh Coldwater Fishery Alliance throughout the weekend. The presentations were very well received with huge attendance each day! Thank you for your interest and support! Slowly but surely the word is getting out about this grassroots effort.

Piggybacking off of that...be sure to mark your calendars:
February 16 - Split Rock Lodge - 6:30pm - FEW Dam Flow Management Workshop.
Lets get a decent turn-out for the fishery!
