Hey folks, I was up there this weekend and it was a mess on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. You are correct when assuming it was wiped out but it did settle down on Sunday. I saw some big Salmon roll in Quarryville at the mouth of the brook Sunday and the water did clear up but they would not take. I caught a couple trout in the later part of the day but heard of a few other trout being caught.
I know all this rain may not be fun now but she is sure good for the long run and the shiney fellows to come in a few weeks.
One thing I did try all weekend however was worm fishing in the tidal water and we caught some nice trout. I would say black brookies. We also caaught close to ten suckers which was more than I ever seen in 20 years at this location. There were also a few stripers caught in the Newcastle area but no major amounts yet.
So yes the river was a wash out for a couple days but it did start to drop. More rain to come early week so it may be clear by the weekend.
