albud1962.............where in the Mechanicsburg area was there a fishkill? I'm not rying to be a smartass , it's just that after moving back out west here i don't get the news on stuff like that and i'm really concerned and interested in what happens in all of our states waters and woods , was the problem in the Susky? or was it a smaller water like the Conodoguinnet or Breeches? I'd appreciate any info , thanks.

albud, did you mean on the Yough?

There was a fish kill right below where these guys are taking water in Dawson at the beginning of the summer: my brother discovered and reported it, but when he heard back he was told that there was no way to determine what exactly had caused these fish to die. Apparently--for roughly 300 yards--on the bank just below the put-in at Dawson, there were lots of dead fish. Suckers, carp, bass, bait fish, etc . . .

I was at the Dawson ramp the other day putting a boat in and passed nine trucks waiting in line for water. There were already four loading up. I spoke with one of the drivers and he said that they were running water for this outfit 24 hours a day and that each truck held 4,000 gallons of water.


I will say that I haven't seen any noticeable impact on the fish or the fishing down there this summer. Nevertheless, best to keep a watchful eye.
