For the first time in our lives the Prof and I fished in every month of one calendar year here in SEPA. It was 2012 obviously. I see this as a trend and a threat to our passion of fishing. Here are the recent records for the warmest years in Philly.

1 -- 58.9 2012

2 -- 58.2 1931

2 -- 58.2 1998

4 -- 58.1 1991

5 -- 57.8 2011

6 -- 57.7 2010

7 -- 57.6 1990

7 -- 57.6 2002

7 -- 57.6 2006

10 -- 57.2 1921

10 -- 57.2 1932

10 -- 57.2 2001

I see urban sprawl, farming practices, water treatment and deforestation in SEPA to be more of a threat to the wild trout streams there than the average atmospheric temporature change. No doubt last year was a hot year...

I was reading about that, from what I understand the average highs weren't that much warmer than prior years. What really put it over the top was that it didn't cool off overnight. Humid, sticky summer! BLAH! I remember doing my paper route at 5:15am and sweating! Nasty.

Bob, how could you forget about those three sweet ladies that asked us for directions in the middle of nowhere? That was right before the t-storm blew us off the stream too!

You are right, I forgot about that. More people there than places I usually fish. New vest is cooler mesh, and Filson .... and come to think of it, I had a NJ license last year and saw many people as I fished dunnfield creek near the AT.

Could be the reason why the W Br Crum Ck, Chester Co lost its already very limited wild brown trout population over the last decade.
