I have heard of Big Fishing Creek , don't know where Tylersville is but know the general area. What AMAZES me is how many folks have seen this and for years even and just shake their heads and do NOTHING ............C'MON folks at least make a few phone calls and follow up on them. I find the conversation in this thread UNBELIEVABLE.

Osprey, you are assuming that no one has tried to do anything about the problems at the Tylersville hatchery, but that is not at all the case.

People have been active in trying to get this problem fixed for years. Including complaints to the PFBC and DEP, written testimony and spoken testimony to the DEP at a public meeting about the hatchery re-licensing, AND a lawsuit brought by a citizens group.

Private citizens have spend a lot of time and energy trying to get the problem fixed.

I used to fish this water often in college. And used to go 3 or 4 times every year until a few years ago. I remember from way back when, it was an incredible fishery. A limestone stream that looked like a classic mountain freestoner cutting through a mountain filled with beautiful wild trout, some of size way out of proportion to the size of the creek. And hatches that at times looked like snow. The last couple times I went, it kind of broke my heart. The scenery was still gorgeous, but the fish and quality of fishing, well, it was just a mere shadow of its past.

If there is ANY way we -- as concerned anglers -- could help resurrect this stream to its former glory it would be worth the effort. Perhaps it's time we all crank it up to the next level. I'm going to begin a letter-writing campaign to PFBC and politicians and see if anything comes of it. Hell, it's a start anyway.

What we really need to do is get rid of all hatcheries on top trout streams. We shouldn't be using running the most productive limestone springs in the state through fish hatcheries. That water belongs in the streams. If you have hatcheries, you're going to have effluent.

Is Tylersville Hatchery Causing Severe Damage to Big Fishing Creek?

We should all be aware that hatchery effluent damages trout streams, period. Big Fishing Creek likely has an excessive amount of hatchery effluent flowing into it from the Tylersville Fish Hatchery. After hearing from multiple people who visit this stream that they are seeing dead fish and things that are out of the ordinary I think its pretty obvious something should be done.

I made an inquiry with the hatchery about the same thing that FoxGap and others have pointed out last year and apparently there is still a problem. Below is a list of just a couple of different agencies to contact. Please do not use this thread for small talk or to reminisce. If you contact an agency listed or have one to add please share... if not please refrain so important information and contact does not get buried. I just emailed the PA Department of Environmental Protection. Will let you know when somebody responds.

Here's a link to an article that gives some, not all, of the history there.

Calling any newspaper about it is a good idea!

I'd email the local Papers. They get a story with no effort .

Any kind of water industry shouldn't be near a spring creek.
