65 F water turns in to 72F + water by the time it reaches the Lehigh. ALso, how far down stream do you think water temps reach 68F....I'd bet not very far on days like we have been having, so by releasing 65 F water it limits the fishery.

And, Its not fine when past operations have proven they have the capability to do so and keep the stream cooler. Seems fishy now?

My point is that you're more convincing when you leave the hyperbole out. And I know I'm not alone in thinking that.

The bridge construction right above the Po confluence is another issue. Seems to be less insect life, but I guess that will turn around after construction is over.

i know it was cold enough the other day when I might of slipped/fell and a certain part of my anatomy went into hiding in the lower part of my abdomen..



nice stream i liked it. but the FOOOOD was the best. they had the High Life in a bottle so it passed my beer of choice requirement.

i will eat the uncle joes the next time i go up so i can get the t-shirt and pic on the wall.

In todays Morning Call there was one picture of a 13# Rainbow and another Rainbow that is 15#+ reported to be caught in the Pohopoco Creek.The 15#er is submitted for a state record.
The fingerlings must be growing well LOL!

HA... LOL is right. Thank the LRSA for that, which I think was already discussed. "Money first, resource 2nd"

As a member of the LRSA we promote catch and release, but we can not live in everybody's fishing gear and force them to put the fish back that we provide. "I wonder if the metal stringer hanging off the wading belt is standard issue? " If you are so concerned about the way we stock the river I invite you to join our club and come to the meetings, it is only 15 dollars to become a voice in our club and we take everybody's concerns very seriously. To everybody that fish's the PO at the Parryville damn..Where do you think all those fish come from? Thats right the LRSA, other then the fingerlings. WE are the only group that is making a contribution to The Lehigh and we are always looking for people to show up at our meetings and help us with ideas. It is always so easy to be critical of an organization and the way it is run, when you have nothing to do with it. If you do not like us Odd Folk that live above the gap, stay away, stay in Philly area and fish the dead water streams down there. Do not lump a couple of old Anthracite people and every one of us being inbreeding knuckleheads. If it was not for the LRSA the Lehigh River would be a cesspool and as a member of the club I am very proud of the way the Lehigh has been brought back from extinction. So Please if you have concers, come to a meeting and have your voice heard, but do not sit in the shadows and be critical of an organization that gives you a reason to come up to the Gap area from your comfy Philly area lives.

I'll tell you what Lehighregular, instead of putting down the LRSA because of sour grapes maybe you should try working with us a little bit and really making this river better for your club and ours. No wonder whenever I talk to people that know you they say your a Big Ass. none of us even think to bad mouth the Cold water alliance but it seems that's all you do to us. GROW UP.

Hey Becker

Not going to turn this into a pizzing match and hijack this thread...but, You are right, there are a few things I have not agreed regarding the LRSA policies. As for me being a big Azz...maybe, can't please everyone and don't expect everyone to agree with me.

But I still support the LRSA with membership, my part-time guide service donates extra money each year to the org. I also donate guide trips for raffles. I also use to be the secretary, but had to get out for personal reasons...but i guess that's not enough?

If I don't like something, I'm going to speak up. I think I have that right being a paid member. I think what the LRSA did at the Po was a good function and glad the turnout was good...however, minus the stocking. Maybe some education to anglers about refuge areas would make the Lehigh River a better stream in lieu of stocking fish there to attract more anglers and put more pressure on those fish just trying to survive? Your thoughts???

Sorry guys for hijacking the thread, my apologies.

By the way... I was just quoting what was previously said...

Lehighregular, let me apologize to you. I am sorry, I was just so steamed reading this thread and seeing all the LRSA bashing, I took a little of it out on you because i have seen a bunch of your posts on other boards and see how you sometimes just seem to throw us under a truck.. once again I am sorry. I will say this once again to everybody else, you have no right to bash the LRSA if you do not become a member and show up to a damn meeting. Thats all Becker out

My sample size is exactly two people and I should not infer that the entire LRSA is representative of those couple of folks. I am sorry about that. Being a very active member of Tulpehocken TU, I understand your position of hearing an organization you believe in being disparaged. I do not know enough about the LRSA or their operations to make any educated opinions. The first gentleman I meet over Memorial day was very passionate about the organization and put a bunch of flyers on our vehicle. He did have a metal stringer hanging off his wading belt and thus my assumption that the LRSA was pretty much a put and take organization. The name kind of implies that.

You know what jdaddy? you actually made me laugh because I know exactly who you are talking about and a bunch of us give him #OOPS# constantly about his damn stringer. He carries that stringer sometimes because he see's people catch a trout and it is bleeding and they try to revive it in the water and it ends up floating belly up and he grabs them so they do not go to waste. At the meeting on Tuesday he will get an ear full from me about that #OOPS# now.
