I went fishing yesterday on a stream I've been wanting to fish for years. It runs a long way through back country and is an AMD victim that is recovering. The stream may even be a Class A stream, and was surveyed for the first time last year.
I've included a few pics.

Awesome fish and great pictures. Looks like it's recovering just fine.

That's a good sized stream for being an UNT to an UNT. And that's a slaunch of a Brookie. Very nice.

Agreed. That's one heck of a trib to a trib. Beautiful stream and fish!

Very cool! The chance to explore and experience a stream like that makes it all worth while. Simply beautiful!

Thats a nice stream, and a heck of a brookie. I fished a stream after class on tuesday in eastern cambria county that's on the wild trout list, but also suffers from AMD. it has a 2 sq. mile strip mine w/ some sort of passive treatment system at its headwaters, and the stream was a faint creamish color with orangish rocks. Even though it looked pretty bad, i fished it anyway. i didnt see any fish at all, and lifted about 30 rocks in all different habitats and found zero aquatic insects. i dont know how this stream is on the WT list if there is no food in it. I'll have to try further down in the watershed.

I know of a couple small, steep recovering headwater AMD streams that have just about no life in them other than Brookies...and Brookies are definitely the only fish species in them. The Brookies in these streams tend to run pretty small (5-6" is the biggest I've ever seen) but they exist by eating a diet nearly entirely of terrestrial insects.

Chaz, that's a beautiful native right there! I see the rhodos are in bloom, I'll have to fish my fav wild brown/rhodo stream this weekend.

Oh, aren't you going to tell us where that beautiful (UNT) native stream is located? lol

How about the County, that seems innocent enough?

Chaz would never burn his own streams.

I'm not sure if it's been added yet to the Nat. Repro list yet. All I'll say is it's in the Anthracite coal region.
Things brookies eat in those streams are in many cases terrestrials, other fish(brookies), and aquatic insects if there are any. This stream had some. Other streams in the region have been being monitored for some time and the brookies have been found with stomachs full of aphids, milipedes, hoppers, and other terrestrials.

The point everyone but you missed. Post such messages on an open forum is ridiculous, because it really isn't what the forum is about.

I like that you lied about it not being named. I would name it for you, but that would not be fair to others that would prefer to keep it nameless.
