Oh, I agree. But in your post #8, it looked like you were responding to Afish, he defended himself in #10, and it looked like you responded to him again in #12. Just trying to clear up the discrepency.

As I said, I agree with you, that even if you limit it to afish's smaller definition of the SE, Valley and Little Valley still aren't anywhere near the only worthwhile wild trout streams (even if they are the only class A's). And I agreed with him that they are all treasures and shouldn't be taken for granted.

Actually wasn't responding to afish, just stating a fact. Obviously afish and I don't agree on where SE PA is. I use the regional model of PFBC, but in reality it's south of Blue Mt. and west to the Susquehanna.
To the OP,
To be pointed about precautions though, if you don't know how to identify a redd, then be very cautious about where you wade. Don't wade tail-outs, don't wade runs with a lot of clean semi clean gravel, watch out for areas next to the banks that have fine gravel.

Third and final thing is that this is their one shot per year of reroducing , let em have a break , try not to bother actively spawning trout at all , go fish another section or go to another strean alltogether.

A wild trout stream is a treasure, and Valley is the only Class A in SE PA. within a double-haul of Philadelphia. The stream sees an awful lot of pressure all year round. Give the trout a break during the spawning season.
