I find it amazing that there are trout to be caught in the Conemaugh river below Johnstown.......not that i don't believe , it's just that it's so dead and devoid here.....now upstream from here yeah and the tribs but below the Gap? Incredible!!!!!!

Osprey, first time I fished below the dam on Conemaugh, it was surreal! Everything was orange, it looked like we were fishing on Mars. So my buddy's are drinking beer, I figured "what the hell!" Pitch out a tiny torpedo, twitch, twitch , WHAM! Northern pike! Sweet! Now I live near there! It's not fantastic, but it's right here and not very crowded either!

Yeah - loyalhanna creek joins the conemaugh right there. And I kinda figured that those trikes worked their way down from it. I even drove up around several miles to the next bridge crossing over the loyalhanna. And saw just a few trikes in the air there - but they may have already fallen by that time

DaveS........the water in the Conemaugh near Mineral Point is blue milkshake color and the rocks are orange for miles downstream to at least the gap. learn something everyday on here , although i've fished the Loyalhanna for twenty years had no idea it joined the Conemaugh.

Where they meet in Saltsburg, they form the Kiskiminitas River, which drains into the Allegheny near Schenley. And happily there are fish all the way down.

It's amazing to me that a river can be so dead for miles and then become revived to that extent. It shows us that we stopped all the nonsense in the nick of time doesn't it?

Or some other trigonometric function...

if a trike is tracing a sin wave but flying towards you, it will appear to bob up and down. Just sayin!

While you'd think that would be true, they don't really appear to bob up and down. It looks more like the waves of the ocean.

So last night I was doing some work outside. Just about the time I'd hang apiece of soffit one of these little buggers would land on it. their likely coming out of the little feeder crick that starts at the end of my yard. By night fall there were probable a few hundred on my porch. I'll also add, for the vast majority, that against the dark aluminum, they appear a good deal lighter than they actually are.
