Trout of summer
« on: July 21, 2011, 02:22:26 PM »
Took a walk today along the First Fork of the Sinnemahoning Creek here in Wharton ,Pa. With this heat spell dragging on the trout are barely surviving. Where ever there's a spring or underwater current feeding the stream the fish are stacked up. Saw a lot of fish but one hole probably is holding around fifty fish. They were stacked up in the current in only a few inches of cooler water . The water is warm as bathtub water with little oxygen content. Hopefully nobody bothers them as they are already stressed and it wouldn't take much for them to die off. Let's just hope for rain soon.

I may come up and check out the stream, pull some cards from the trail cams. Maybe I'll see you. Thanks for the update on the trout. Is there any bass fishing going on at the Stevenson Dam?

           Nobodys doing much of any fishing in this heat. With the temperatures in the ninety degree range the water is like bath water and no one comes out till late evening. It's sort of funny as you see no one moving all day then after nine at night Sheetz's comes alive with people ordering food and drink.

Went over to the stream today and it's not looking good. Many fish in shallow riffles fighting to get upstream to deeper pool with undercut bank and shade tree. A lot of fish already made it up but there are several floating belly up down below also. Biggest dead one was a two foot brown trout, to bad he survived to grow that big then die because of the heat and low water. No rain in site so I guess the next couple of days will finish them off.

That's terrible when that happens, especially with that big one. Hope some rain comes soon for you!
