...the often mentioned Valley Creek in SE Pa has long been headed in that direction due to the impacts of stormwater runoff. Other than perhaps for its limestone fertility being its saving grace, in time I would not be surprised to see it fall from the Class A category as it continues to become wider and shallower. And, to be honest, I would rather spend a day angling in that NW Pa stream, Class A or not.



Yeah Mike, pretty sad. With every rain event the water just pours directly into the stream and yo-yo's the level up and down (See table below). Most of the banks along the stream are not stabilized resulting in siltation from these high water events. From year to year and even from major rain event to the next, the silt shifts around and changes the stream course. During the thaw you can actually see the banks collapse into the stream before your eyes. When I hear or read the words "legacy sediment" I think of Valley.

VFTU has done and is doing its best to help, but only so much can be done.

I like that both fish in your pictures are completely different in coloration and spot pattern... is it possible to have 2 different "species" of natural repro browns in the same stream?
