Didymo has been found in Dyberry Creek, trib to the Lackawaxen. Those wading birds sure are getting around all of a sudden.

Is Dyberry a tailrace?

There is a flood control dam north of Honesdale, if that's what you mean.

However, according to this it's been found on the East Branch, which puts it above the dam.

Dyberry is not a tailwater with a bottom release dam. It's just a common freestoner like thousands of other PA streams.

I drive by that dam on my trips to the delaware, and have never seen water backed up behind it

Probably open up even more areas to fracking. Ruin the watersheds that way first so nobody will notice the didymo...

What are it's options?

1. Angler education, try to get people to wash stuff properly, etc.

2. Outlaw the most likely vectors, like felts.

3. Outlaw progressively less likely vectors.

It's a sucky situation. #1 is a no brainer. #'s 2 and 3 are and should be considered, but they will only slow the progress. At this point, it's a virtual certainty that in time, all streams will be exposed to it, and it's just yet to be seen where it takes and where the damage will be most severe.

Other than in New Zealand, has any of the infected streams shown a real detrimental impact from didymo? Other than the early spring time blooms that impact nymphing.

I work on AIS issues for Trout Unlimited. Didymo, while not good, is a little different that some of the other aquatic invasive species threats in that it is native to North America. So, while it is impossible to predict exactly what will happen in each stream, Didymo is a native species, and it may not cause the severe infestations that have occurred in places like New Zealand. However, should be vigilant. They can be a vector for Didymo to introduce it and spread it to new waters. TU strongly supports the adoption of clean angling practices to inspect, clean, and dry your gear, especially your wading boots and waders, and to not move fish, fish parts, plants or water between drainages. Elimination of the use of felt soles is also a good idea, and it will help reduce the risk of introducing and spreading AIS.

Well you could have limited the number of non resident licenses to 0 3 or 4 years ago, but that doesn't stop stupid Pennsylvanians from spearding it. Probably every trib to the Delwarewill get it since it's all over the "D."
To answer the question, Dyberry is not a tailwater, it's a freestone stream with a very good population of brook trout. It's easy to see that it would get didymo.
