They've seen worse droughts than this. They've been there for hundreds of years or longer. They'll be all right!

I think right now the biggest threat to these little jewels is the devestation of the hemlock population.....that little bug is doing the same thing the loggers did.....

I hope so, 'bout a month ago I was a controller for the S.E. qualifier for fly fish USA team and I saw some trout rise to the surface, roll over and die. The water was very low and warm as were the fish. It was a saddening sight for sure.
