new record for rainfall in april by RmB on Thu, Apr 28
Cant remember a April this wet,and guess what there hasn"t been. New rainfall records for central new york unbelievable. Is there any small streams that survived this or are all the creeks,streams,and rivers spent. If you know of any keep them tight to your chest and dont give them up unless you really want to,I wont tell promise no really I promise I wont tell.

|Moved to Barneveld in 05 from Glens Falls and quickly fell in love with fishing the W.C. The flood of 06 created a new river to learn to fish. Looks like we are there again.
The pools and runs we fished last year have changed. In a way it's like traveling to a new river.
Last flood when the water came down, the fish, some how, were where you would think they would be and the fishing was priety good. The hatches went to hell for the next 3 years but they were coming back strong starting in 09.
Here we go again. Keep the faith, the W.C. will servive.

|I just watched some Trenton Falls video on youtube. Wow that water was high and ripping. It's hard to believe that in 2006, after this type of water, the fish were still around. Let's hope for the same. Have they done any stocking yet this year, or are they holding off a few weeks? Man, there were some great hatches last year......|

|I own property on the black river about 10 miles down stream from north lake. There is a small inlet on my land where the water comes off the Black river, we call it the back water. In the center of this horse shoe piece of water there is a 4 or 5 acre patch of grass normally this doesnt flood. This year it was completely covered to a depth of 3 ft. This is unheard of but the good part is the brook trout come in to seek refuge from the raging river,now if the water goes down just a little [2ft] then the fishing will be good.BEST OF LUCK TO ALL WHO TRY FISHING|
