Not at all. In my neck of the woods the summer heat decimated the trout populations in many streams. A lot of our streams saw the 80's. The trout that did survive haven't repopulated the stream from the thermal refuge areas yet either, and water temps have been decent in a lot of the smaller streams for a few weeks now, but still very, very low. Not the worse I've seen, but may be there in a few weeks if we don't get A LOT of rain over several days.

We need some hurricanes and heavy tropical storms to move into Pennsylvania. I'm praying this isn't going to be one of those years where we don't get any, like it was in '06 or '07 when the streams were almost entirely dried up through most of November.
Fishing with bait is like swearing in church.
