lycoflyfisher I'm telling you personally your thermometer was broken that day. I'm not trying to be mean either but like I said I practically grew up down there. Spent half my summers as a teen on Bald Eagle from where the canal begins for Hammer Mill (First Quality now) down to the railroad bridge that goes over to Croda/Avery.

July, 2017 in some parts of Pa produced record rainfall or near record rainfall for the month since the recording of such data started. Given that, it is possible that someone who has lived in an area for years would not have ever experienced cool water temps in previous Julys that July, 2017 may have produced. Context matters.

We for sure had good rain fall and I am not a expert on water temps but I have fished bald eagle very familiar with it and it for sure gets to extreme temps in july and august.

I don't care what anyone says I have fished this water my entire life from spring, summer, fall, winter and it's no where in the category close to class a trout water.

Not even close. Like Hook_Jaw said...I don't care what section of Bald Eagle you pick below the dam there is NO CLASS A WATER! You may find a trout here and there but its not class A by any means no matter what someone's studies are telling ya. Those studies are a complete lie in my book! Honestly it makes me wonder what else they are lying about...

Check the lists; I just did! It is not on the Class A list below Sayers, proposed for Class A below Sayers, or being considered for Class A below Sayers. End of story.

It was being considered for class A last year. I laughed when I heard it. Actually I heard they even did a fingerling stocking at the spillway. I bet the musky, walleye, bass, and any other larger predatory fish loved that stocking!

John they have been doing it since 2016 a guy at the spillway told me when I was fishing last month. I don't think we need a million dollar study to improve the aquatic life either.

Who is spending a million dollars on a study?

They want to start playing around with the water height of the dam and trying to have a more continuous flow of water below the dam. Somehow they thought they could turn lower Bald Eagle into a trout fishery. I know residents near the dam and people who use the dam for recreational uses were very upset. As much as I would love to have another trout fishery, lower Bald Eagle just isn't one and probably shouldn't be one. I haven't heard any more about this since they had the big public meeting last year.

By "they" I believe that Army Corps of Engineers and possibly SRBC were the main agencies pursuing the proposed study in question. I have not heard anything since the public meeting, but it is not a PFBC driven study. I am not sure how anyone could argue scientifically that a more consistent flow regime would not help lower bald eagle. forget about wild trout improvements just in a sense of improving habitat for all aquatic life downstream as long as a summer pool can be maintained above the dam to continue to provide the recreational opportunities that Sayers does.

They never cared for all those years before where did the all of a sudden we care about lower bald eagle come from?
