Needless to say that there has been a lot of flooding in my area. Property damage is happening all over & some roads have had to be closed. In short, it has been raining here all month long. You can count on one hand the number of days when we haven't had rain this month.
This has all but destroyed the fishing in streams & rivers here. Forget about fly fishing any local streams for a very long time here. The entire region of PA, Eastern Ohio, West Virginia, parts of Western New York, & others have been really soaked.
So I guess it's time to hit the ponds & lakes with my fly rod!! That seems to be the only alternative at this time. If you're planing a trip to PA for some fly fishing, you'd better call ahead first!!
I hope you're all safe sound where you are. I've been lucky here so far & the rod shop is still intact - though it's getting so humid that I'm going to have to invest in another dehumidifier for the shop!! In fact, if it keeps raining the scene around the rod shop will look just like this:
Not being able to fish for trout in my local streams has me singing tunes like this one:
