    Re: Delaware River DIDYMO

    I fished the south Holston and the Watauga rivers this past March and found didymo to be pretty wide spread. The diatom seems to thrive in many of the TVA rivers.

    It's also found in the Conneticutt River, Vermont's White River, NY & VT's Battenkill and many others in the west and east.

    South Holston has didymo?

    We were going to fish that river tomorrow.... if this is true may have to change our plans.

    Is there a site that someone can check which river have didymo?

    The Wiki page for didymo lists the South Holston as having it. It's not updated to show the West or East Branches of the Delaware, but other rivers are listed. But I would bet that didymo is present in most major tailwaters, discovered or not. I believe the cow has been out of the barn for a while on this one.

    Then again I have the Jar Head with me... So we'll have to settle for running over (killing) armadillos or stray dogs that we see on the highway.

    Don't swerve too severely to run over those stray dogs or you'll flip that trailer of yours

    Re: Delaware River DIDYMO

    Didymo is certainly a bad thing when it gets out of control. The likely hood is every fly fishing river in the country has been exposed by now and for the most part no one knew they were doing it, but that is the down side of our incredible ability to travel to fish! It is likely that we fly guys got it going.
    I live with it here in Vermont and so far it is not a problem but a serious concern. Hot soapy water over night works just fine according to the biologists here. Save your equipment from chlorine.

    I have a pair of rubber wading boot.
    There isn't much more we can do and there is no telling what will happen as it can be spread by boats, animals, ducks and even the wind.
    At first I was in a panic but now I have taken a deep breath and looked around. There is no situation like NZ here thank God. Let's just use rubber boots and be careful when traveling not to spread it or bring it back. If you fish the same river day in and day out there isn't much of a concern.

    Truth,Truth....isn't all that popular lately!
