It rained nonstop in July and August in Central Pennsylvania. Our water levels were so high that most of our creeks flooded. Some rose into major flood stage. We had more than two weeks of nonstop rain. Then it took about two weeks for the water to come back down to fishable levels. However, our water levels have returned to just above normal and trout fishing in the region is good.

Many anglers thought that our trout got washed away in the floods and as bad as it looked on TV I understand why. Fortunately, they are still here. Some out the trout got moved around and the rivers and creeks may have changed course, but they are still loaded with rainbows and browns. I’ve even seen a few golden rainbows around this week.
