There was a city paper article last week about a float trip down the tidal section of the Schuylkill.

I wrote in a response to the article, and got PAC a shoutout in the letter to the editors section.  Probably the only time you'll see a certain local species referenced in a publication! :P

Nice work Matt... thanks for the link to the story. I too would love to eat those bothersome channel cats that love eating my corn.

Great commentary Matt.  You gave them a perspective that most people never get and publicized the PAC in the process. 8)

I hope the Schuykill whitefish soon becomes an endangered species.

I hope not, it'll upset the population balance and we'll see an increase in youngins, including young punks!

I just hope the white fish stop migrating to the Schuylkill!

I think the SWF are intended to stop the spread of STD's more so than controlling the population.  :-\

I could really go without the after storm migrations in my area of the Susky as well  :P

you have to be careful with those whitefish when you go to take the hook out make sure you dont squeeze it too hard or all the guts will come out ;) ;)

This article is pretty interesting.. It makes me want to throw my Kayak in the river and going exploring.. Any one intrested? Also I wonder if the carp fishing would be better in the lower portion of the river due to lack of angling pressure?

The carp fishing is better there because the tidal environment allows the fish to grow bigger. ;) it's tougher to fish though.
