    Good summer water

    I spent the day fishing the Tom and I absolutely slayed the little browns on dries. The water level was the best I've seen at this time of year and the fish cooperated to the point where I lost count after a couple dozen.

    However after all the storms we have had, there is about 100 years of wood across the stream that makes fishing very difficult. Good for the fish, bad for the fisherman.

    Nice to see So many smaller fish getting caught.

    Re: Good summer water

    Yes Mac, I had a great variety of different year class fish ranging from 4-5 inches up to some fish that were 10-11 inches. After some of the dry spells over the last few years it is good to see the numbers of small fish.

    In my travels of WTS in and around the Poconos this summer I have observed tremendous amounts of damage to the trees in the hemlock ravines. I would guess that there has been over a 50% loss of fishable water from all the tree that are down in and across the streams. But as I said, good for the fish habitat, but tough fishing conditions. Just be sure to wear your calk boots for climbing over all the wood.
