Hi,
A friend of mine was in Pforge this weekend and said he noticed the streach form there to Gburg was posted no wading fishing etc. due to contamination??? Anyone hear anything about this??
Thanks,
Bob

I fished in Pigon Forge near the old mill a couple of years ago and it was posted as contaminated, also the childrens stream next to the hatchery has been posted for years, they had covered the conaminated signs up this spring. I don't for sure but I have been told it's because of the sewage from Gburg.

It's from the increased fecal coliform count that usually results from low water and no rain to flush the streams. As they say, it usually runs downhill.

Thanks guys,
Figured it was from low flow.
