And the reason why the releases have to be called "fisheries" releases is tied to the "recreation" purpose designation for FEW.

If our bureaucrats would change the purpose or include "conservation" as a designation for FEW, then it would be a completely different ball game.

Part of the issue with FEW is the designated purposes - 1) Flood Control and 2) Recreation.

Adding a "conservation" designation is just one of the changes needed at FEW. This is where the PFBC needs to start politicking with our federal lawmakers.

at the low fisheries input does the Lehigh ever get so small you could easily cross it?

k-Bob -> Yes. 400-500cfs from the dam is the upper limit of wading. Of course it depends how aggressive of a wader you are. So somewhat relative numbers.

They do not put in above White Haven. I cross the Lehigh a lot when the water drops to non ripping levels. You have to have some cajones and be familiar with the river. I am not familiar with the upper section wading wise at all. If I was you, I would check it out at a low point and have a back up plan if you can not cross where you want to. Also, pay attention to releases. Would hate for you to get stuck on the opposite side.
