The good news, lot's of water in the streams.... the bad news, mostly bass in residence:

State to get warmer, wetter in next century, study says
Wednesday, July 15, 2009
The Associated Press
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- A climate change study from Penn State University says more precipitation and warmer temperatures are in the forecast for the commonwealth over the next century.

Scientists at the school's Environment and Natural Resources Institute say temperatures in Pennsylvania could rise an average of 3 to 7 degrees, depending on greenhouse gas emission levels.

Precipitation may increase, especially in winter, though it's expected to be more rain and less snow.

That forecast could spell trouble for ski resorts. Conversely, the report suggests the growing season could extend by three to five weeks.

The study was conducted for the state Department of Environmental Protection.

Funny, they had a similar article in the Conservative rag they call the Tribune Review...funny part was two pages later they denied the warmer wetter part in the Opinion section as it did not fit in with their Climate Change denial philosophy.

More water in freestones with limited feeder springs spells bad news for trout fishing. BUT more water in limestones and spring-fed freestones means better trout fishing in those streams, right? If the average temps rise only rise a few degrees, the spring water temperature should still be fine for trout. Plus more water means faster flows in higher gradient streams so in theory they shouldn't warm as quickly -- especially those with good riparian borders. And if the growing season extends then there should be lush growth along the banks.

Good way to look at it greenghost, the stream is half full instead of half empty.
