Stoney Creek went under ground in one spot yesterday. There are very few fish in that section because it has gone under ground at least once per year for the last 5 years.

Now, the good news. We are catching more and more 4-5 inch trout. Damn few 10-12 inchers ,but the recovery is starting well. If we just can continue to get rain I think the creeks up here will be in good shape withing 2 years

Continue hell. It is dry up here. Had an earth worm come up and give me a high five last night as I was taking a leak in the yard.

Pond at home has dropped for the first time this summer....it was down about 8 inches :(

thats not bad compared to the last couple of summers....and if we get a good rain...it could bring it right back up.

I'm steering clear of the small streams here. Went to the FB yesterday with one of my students. So low you could 'dry foot' up to the dam on the side they let you fish. Saw several carp feeding but it was so clear. They counted my thread wraps and moved along. Couple stopped and started staring at my water bottle. I would have chummed some corn in but they would have ordered a beverage with their meal.
