Looks like I will be missing my first Newbie jam of the year. Unless something changes, both dates are booked .. I would say have a beer for me but I prefer you catch some fish for me instead

Oh Ed where is thee????????????????????????


I'm just waiting patiently. This is a tough time of year for me to plan anything, as I often don't find out if I have to work until the day before.

Usually, I keep a few extra vacation days in store, so I can do things like organize a trico jam. Not this year, as I've had to burn my extra days already.

No use speaking up unless I know I can be there - unless you leave yourself open to a smartazz comment, which is inevitable at some point.

Something I'd suggest - check with Dave at the fly shop to find out if there's anything going on down there on your chosen day. It'd stink if there's an event already going on when you guys want to set up your picnic. Table space is at a premium this time of year down there. If it's OK, he can at least guarantee you the tables in front of the shop to use, and they're under canopies.

Stag, unless the area has a serious heat wave the LL will be under 70 degrees. There are no WW fish worth targeting.

It interests me how quickly water temps rise, drop, and why. For example .. we are going to be having 5 days of temps in the 90's.

If the LL was in my yard how high would temps get in those really hot hrs of 1PM - 4 PM?

How quickly do water temps drop when the sun starts setting?

Is it different than the Nesamany for example and if yes, why?

Why do limestone creeks stay cool even in heatwaves?

etc, etc...

Seems like dumb questions but I never gave this any thought abt this b/ it didn't interest me & I never had to. Also, this is the newbie forum and rules state anything goes no matter how dumb the questions are

Thanks

So what was the final date on this? I'd like to come, but could only do the 21st. On the 14th, I'll be up the other place with the family.

Stagger - if the LL was in your yard, you'd have a much bigger problem than worrying about water temps.

The Little Lehigh is a limestone spring creek. The creek has numerous limestone springs that feed into it, especially in the area of the lower C&R FFO section.

These limestone springs emerge through a layer of limestone substrate. This means that the water has a high PH, thereby helping to buffer the stream against the effects of acid rain. This is good for the aquatic plants, bugs, and fish.

Since the springs emerge from deep underground, the temperatures are typically in the low 50 degree range. This helps the stream maintain a more constant temperature by keeping it warmer in winter, and cooler in summer.

The LL never freezes in winter, and it takes a prolonged heatwave to get it over 70 degrees (at least in the lower fly stretch). The highest temperature reading I got last year was 68.1 degrees. I'm not saying it doesn't get warmer, but that's the highest temperature I recorded last year.

Did you take that temp with your rectal thermometer?

Good stuff HA .. thanks you have a way of 'blending' everything together in layman's terms

That is pretty impressive considering (if I recall) we had a very hot summer last year. The LL is pretty fish-able, and holds its trout population well, all summer long, no?

It only smells like a rectal thermometer because you stuck it in your ear.
