They are all disappointments, imo.

I agree Jack, I'm from around New Stanton area and within a hour drive of me there is maybe a few that hold an "ok" population of streambread or natives. And now that the Yough has a class A case of Didymo... Well, that's a big blow to SWPA to say the least

It's true they can't be compared to other small streams in Central or Eastern PA. There, you can easily have a 30 fish day. IN SW PA on a typical day you may catch 5 or 6, generally speaking. AMD and acid rain have taken their toll over the years. But things are improving. They are certainly worth exploring.

One note: Hell Run is tough terrain, expect an aerobic workout, and it has become somewhat popular since advertised on the Class A Listing. Fishing it is no cakewalk.
