For those that would like to know more about the LRSA they have a good website(s),check it out.They do a great deal of work in improving the Big Lehigh and if the FEW dam people would be more coopertive that river would rival any other in the USA.

No it wouldn't! You'd have about 20miles of decent of trout fishing and that's if you would some how be able to convince ACOE to set the flow at 800min. Where are these fish going to spawn? On the 20ft long boulders? This river will always depend on stocking and there for it will never be world class!

I'm no biologist, but I'm pretty sure the way its supposed to work is fish that can't spawn in the river run up the tribs to spawn then drop down to live in the river as will the young when they're big enough to survive it.

And, in an ideally unspoilt-by-man world, the biggest would eventually wind up in the ocean and become sea-run, but no matter how hard anyone tries, I'd say salmon runs in the Lehigh aren't gonna work out. :)

On the other hand, if we could somehow get working on that, I'd like to not drive to Pulaski. ;)

Yeah wild free ranging fish would love the Lizard, Mahoning and The Aquaschicola! Plus any fish that would stay in the Tribs in the spring over 8in would end up on metal rope!

Where did the Salmon enter this?There are no Salmon stocked in the Lehigh.But there are lots of trout stocked there and if the flow of water and temps would be cooler in the summer many more fish would survive and spawn in the tribs as you mentioned.Would it be "World Class'?That's a matter of opinion,but it sure would be a great fishery close to many people.

Salmon entered it when someone made a joke. As is their right.

And no, it almost certainly wouldn't be world class by most peoples' standards. I'd love to see a better fishery there, but world class it ain't. I'm not going to pin that on the corps.

I will be heading up to Kresgeville around July 9th( maybe) depends on my health. My wife has their annual family reunion there. When I stay for a couple of days,I usually get to fish the Pohopoco, a couple of times.

In the past I have fished below the Dam, around the Turnpike exit. If I do come up, I'll let you guys know, maybe I could hookup with some of you local guys and we could fish together.

I may be headed there tomorrow afternoon. Been a few years since I fished the Pohopoco and I want to test a new 9' rod. Enough room there to cast a 9 footer?

outsider as a new fly fishermen myself, I only have a 9ft rod because I love fishing the Lehigh, and I fish the Po alot. So if a newbie like myself can fish the Po with a 9fter I am sure an experienced fly fishermen like yourself should have no problem.

May I suggest not fishing the Lehigh at all for trout at this present time?
