Probably is my most-fished water, but not my favorite. It can be the only game in town during summer heatwaves, and often is for short trips in the winter. When other streams become "available," I generally go to them. With the trail access a lot of the river below the outflow is open so anglers can spread out. At the same time, because of the river's width, I can share an area with a few other anglers and still not feel crowded.

Not near me, but that certain famous water near Chambersburg has only enticed me twice and the experience was not pleasant. Oh, the stream is a marvel, but the fishing is quite the chore. I'd love to fish it with someone who knows the water well.

Meadow Run, Dunbar, Neshannock, Oil Creek and Cool Spring. None are what you would call real close, but these are streams that get mentioned fairly often in the western part of the state that I have not fished.

I could show you two of those five if you ever come down this way. I suspect the Laurel Highlands streams are much different than what you have in your neck of the Penn's woods.

I guess you missed the "Westmoreland" in my "From:" section (Westmoreland/Tioga). I live about 20 miles from the center of Monessen. The "Tioga" is a camp.

However, if you think I am missing something, I am game if you are.

If you live close to Meadow Run, you should give it a visit this time of year. It's a very scenic stream, in the "gorge" section. And the wildflowers are amazing in the spring. Certain places in PA are just choc-a-block with wildflowers. I don't know the reason. It probably has something to do with geology, soil etc. But, anyway, Meadow Run is one of those places.

Yes, I did miss that, or else I thought it was your pedigree and that now you were in the northwoods. So, anyhow, you aren't missing anything, but both Meadow and Dunbar are nice stocked waters , and with a little hiking, Dunbar has some natives.

That was almost my choice too, but then I remember I did fish it once when a buddy of mine when to Messiah College.

The Lehigh and Clark's are the only relatively close ones that I haven't fished.

Thanks, that is a good reason to give it try.
