I decided not to use "Big, Large, or Huge" this time around because I found that the use of these words tended to occasionally put some people on the defensive and a few even seemed to be offended by it. Not so much here, but other sites of course. It must have had something to do with their feelings of inadequacy.

I probably won't be posting much for awhile. Don't want to repeat what has been said recently. ... and I promise to try and not ruffle too many feathers.

Been away because I hadn't fished in PA for over a year. I'm hoping things will be different this year.

Jack, you missed the point, West Branch Perkiomen Creek is NOT Approved Trout Water, it is therefore illegal to harvest trout during the extended season.

Glad to see you're back, BFD. I bet it looks like a lot of the discussions and arguments are the same as when you last visited. But there's always something new going on, too.

My freshman year at PSU we had 3 Dave's within a couple rooms in my dorm. There was Big Dave, Regular Dave, and Little Dave. I was Little Dave (but I didn't feel inadequate - you would understand if you knew Big and Regular!).

Don't go we liked having you as a regular, I've been wondering where you've been. Merry Christmas Big Dave, Large Dave and Huge Dave or whatever you use this week.

I don't think I missed the point. Chaz made this statement:

"Wild Trout Streams are strictly C & R after Labor Day"

That is not true, as the regulation clearly says, unless there are NO wild trout streams downstream of an ATW or none that are themselves ATWs.

If that is the case, I stand corrected. My post did not address West Branch Perkiomen specifically

I plan to stick around for awhile, I just will probably be following along for awhile to get caught up. and yes Wulff-Man, the discussions look very familiar. some things never change.

The real reason I left is Tim Murphy quit posting for awhile. I see he is back. I didn't want to be the only big-mouth, errr ... I mean big guy at the site.

I'll open up another can of worms. I think this has been discussed here in the past, but not sure if it was ever resolved: Does "all waters downstream of approved trout waters" include tributaries that flow into the ATW or sections downstream of the ATW?

I do not think you are safe in treating a tributary as a "downstream area of an ATW" just because it enters the ATW downstream. I think the best way to interpret the regulation is that if place a bobber (or strike indicator) into the ATW and it can float into the area you plan to fish, then it is covered by the extended season regulations. I have yet to be able to float anything up a tributary from the mouth to the headwaters.
