I love me some wild natives. correcting someone for the wild/native thing only does one thing: it shows everyone else how desperate you are to look like you know something IMHO.

^ Yep, I'm sure that's why Salmonoid sent them a note on the subject.

I know it's the same reason I brought up the PFBC funding to you after reading your letter in the "House Bill" thread. I didn't do that to help your cause and make sure the elected official you were communicating with, who probably already knows the agency's funding, takes you seriously.

First saw them at Brewfest this past spring. The tap handles caught my attention. The Brown Trout Stout is very very good in my opinion.

I will be checking out the brewery soon.
On a related note. Has anyone fished Snitz?

Yes. The more freestone like headwaters holds Brookies and there’s a few “native” Browns further down. The lower sections are ATW and get pounded…lots of tents near the bridges around opening day. There’s quite a few sizable limestone springs that contribute to it, so I always think it should be a nicer stream than it is but such is the case with nearly all of the Lebanon Valley streams.

Squatch and I got kicked out of one such un-posted section once where a significant limestone spring enters it and almost doubles its flow. I almost let myself get drawn into a debate with the lady about posting her land if she didn’t want folks fishing it, but in the end I should have asked permission first, despite it not being posted. It was below freezing that day, and the water coming in from the spring was 52 deg…

I’ll definitely be trying the brewery since I’m so close, but I’ll probably fish elsewhere.

I tried to find evidence of brookies by scouting and dapping a fly but no luck. Around the iron furnace? Caught some browns and rainbows farther down. Seemed to be some wilds among both. The upper part just seemed like a fine silt maybe from the ore mining.
On a similar note, there is some major erosion (basicaly landslides) taking place in the headwaters from all the cutting and spraying they are doing along 322 on top of the mountain.

After enjoying their beer, I tried to find Snitz creek last year using the GPS guide. It took me to some farm field. The creek itself was only 4 or 5 feet wide.. so I didn't bother to try. I went to another section and it was maybe 6 feet wide and right behind a large row of houses. I was not in the mood to fish fairly sterile water in someone's back yard, so I just went for Quitty instead.

Are there any parts of Snitz that look and feel like a real trout stream? My impression is that it's just a water/runoff trail that they throw fish into for locals.

It's a beautiful limestoner and I'd like to fish it in the summer. Other than getting kicked off by that lady, I enjoyed the stream. Hooked into a pretty fish down by the bridge but nothing brought to hand.

Well I hope everyone is happy, they changed the description on the website

Brown Trout Stout

Named for trout found in the Snitz Creek, this is our personal twist on a classic Irish stout. This beer is extremely smooth and easy to drink, with hints of cocoa, caramel, and roasted barley.

4.6% ABV, 25 IBUs

Stopped by the brewery yesterday and had a great time - Tried the Apple Weiss and the Woodland Pale Ale - great brews. Wife & I had the burgers, not too shabby. Went home with a pint glass.
Good trip.

Now if the Snitz had some native browns or wild browns I'd be impressed
