STILL raining here in Wilmington. I'd guess blown out - check the USGS streamflows online...

We were surveying the wadable section of Conestoga, taking advantage of the low flow last week and early this week to be able to wade some normally unwadable holes. We stepped up the pace to finish by Wednesday. It was a good thing that we did....lucked out once again. I think the wading opportunity has passed below the confluence of Muddy Ck for the fall.

The Conestoga was wonderful the past few weeks. Flows of +/- 150cfs = good wading. Yeah, it's gonna take a while for that thing to come back down again and clear up! The Swatara was also good and wadeable as well. Not so now!

With the government shutdown, does anyone know if all of the gauges are even accurate. I'm guesing if it has an updated date and time it is but I'm in CA (flying back tomorrow finally) and I'm seeing all the posts about all the rain but most gauges still show below normal readings.

Just curious.

Fox - I think the gauges are for the most part still online and accurate. The rain has been mainly a SE/SC PA event. Remnants of TS Karen spinning off the eastern seaboard and producing an easterly flow and rain spinning in from the ocean.

Lots of blue and black dots from Harrisburg east and south.

Yep, lots of rain, but as geebee wrote, we'll get a couple of weeks of good fishing once it settles down.

It's still raining hard here in Adams (although its slowed since earlier today). Took a drive around the area this evening and there's a lot of local flooding. Mid sized creeks are over their banks and have flooded low lying plains. Little creeks that dry up seasonally are way up and out into fields. I haven't seen this much water around here since Sandy a year ago.

We were really lucky there was so much capacity in the landscape for such a deluge. If water levels had already been high, the results would have been much worse. Let's hope it tapers off.

Here are some storm totals from the NWS. Pretty impressive!

Foxy - this was real localised. The storm didn't really make it as far north as the Lehigh Valley, as I said in my OP the odd situation is that the southern streams are going to fish better than our favourite northern spots.

I dumped 4.5'' out of my gauge in a little over 24 hrs. There was a little light rain after that. I'm in Del. Co; extreme SE PA.

A friend of mine yesterday told me he dumped nearly nine inches of rain out of his gauge and that was in less than 24 hours! As of today, it has mostly run off and the flooding has subsided on the small, seasonal creeks. Fortunately, the 2nd and 3rd order waterways were very low going in and this has allowed the watershed to drain out pretty quickly.

We dodged a bullet in Adams Co (wiping sweat from my brow).

the weather idiots say we are to get 2.5 inches over the next three days, less as you go further north.

looks like the SE PA and South central streams could out fish the Northern streams this weekend !


I know I'm hit'n this post after the fact but I had 5 to 7 inches of the H2o in Huntingdon from Wednesday thru Friday sooo going north was no answer. They needed it something wicked tho. When we got up there Wednesday afternoon the cricks were pretty low n slow. But blow'd out was the order of the day.

Well one river , not in P.A. but close. The Gun powder was blown out by the dam over flow. Seems the water co. knew the storm was coming for days , but didn't lower the water in pretty boy to alow for more rain. The flow rate was over 1,000, banks were washed out. not the storm, but poor management of the dam.
