I have theorized many times that it is something like the sound of a sea shell :-/

Frustrating!

Were you fishing the Heritage stretch? If so, that is what you get, and you can not be mad about it. If you were not in that section, then they were in the wrong and are aholes.

I am no expert in Little Lehigh, but it did seem especially crowded this weekend, both in the heritage section and in the park below.

I figure the amount of space and privacy you can reasonably expect is inversely proportional to the amount of people there... and spin / bait /family fishing users tend to be less sensitive to "personal space"


still, what you report seems awfully close. But again, in a mobbed public park type space, I feel that is part of the cost of doing business.

I was out in Allentown for work one weekend this past spring and got to fish the LL. It just so happened it was also stocking day through the park. I arrived before the stocking truck and wondered why there were literally 100 "fishermen" just standing around bs'ing. I continued to fish through the park and then the trucks showed up. People were literally jumping into the creek to get ahead of the next guy where they just threw a bucket of fish in. That was the end of the day for me.

It's stories like this about our more famous streams that is the reason I avoid them. Can the reputation of a stream literally compensate the fishing. We read about others and their experiences of the famous stream of yesteryear and long to make memories of our own. Streams change and things go on. The state of Pa has much to offer and we are blessed with so many streams that we overlook many and I prefer them. It's a good thing that the people who fish will continue to go where others have gone hoping to have the same success. It's a blessing that some streams draw more fisherman.
Funny thing. You can usually tell others (fisherman) intentions. They know if they are imposing. They will not talk or draw eye contact. When I fish around other people, I become talkative. I want to share the stream and I have fond memories of the people I have met on crowded streams. It's unfortunate but some people just have no desire to find out anything for themselves. If he is fishing there then there must be fish there. There are people who fish and there are fisherman.
I'd rather catch chubs alone on a no-name crick, than a stocked trout in a crowd no matter how famous and prestigious the stream.
To each his own.

People are ignorant, and that's why I don't go there much anymore, though when I do I stay away from others.

For what it's worth, I found the crowds on LL not that disruptive... as long as your mindset is you are fishing in the middle of a park, not in the middle of the wilderness, I think it was actually remarkably painless.

We live in the east where we dump fish by the buckets into streams and expect civility from the nimrods. Get there when it's cold windy, and some snow won't hurt. The only other people you'll see are nuts like us and people walking dogs.

And if you go to that exact spot now you wont see that nice low dam and riffle anymore because they improved it by removing it and created lots of low featureless water above it and not much of a hole below it.

They improved the already featureless water above it? Nice.
