TimR sez: "there are tons of poisonous snakes up there too!

so just to recap:

low and clear
spooky fish
no cicadas
waste of time
and poisonous fish

man I don't think I'd like fishing there"

How about the bears?

Back to the original question-- on the top right of the back page of the first section of the Patriot News is a report showing how many inches over or under the Dehart damn spillway the reservoir is. From this you can figure how much water is flowing down Clark's. I have never been able to find this data on the Internet though.

I like the Clark's. I've had double digit fish days as well as skunk days there.

Between the dam and where it flows under rt 225, there are a TON of small feeders. They are sometimes flowing and sometimes they are dry. The dam might release 30 cfs and a mile below the dam the flow has doubled. Three miles more and it doubles again. I was actually amazed that it was that low when I drove by it on Saturday morning. It's a beautiful place and I've had big number days there as well. Those days were in the past. The fly section has really change over the last 30 years and not for the better.

To recap:

It's a beautifl area
The fishing can be challenging
The fish are spooky even if you're in camo
The fishing isn't all that great
You may see bear, snakes or flogged by a mother turkey like I was
Enjoy your deer flies and skeeters, there's plenty of them
Quite possibly the biggest tick population I've ever encountered

It's a nice place to kill some time or find some solitude. Is it a "destination" stream? Absolutely not. Someone (not me) mentioned it was a waste of time. Not for everyone. Some people enjoy crawling on their hands and knees to catch a 6" fish. I sure don't and for me in particular, I would also deem it to be a waste of time.

I had 5 neighbors in my yard last night fly casting. Between them and my nephew, I'll end up on Clarks in the very near future. I'll go there for them but I won't enjoy it.

I agree. It's awful. I think everyone should stay away and not fish it again...
