They are almost Yankees, almost in West Virginia and they can hit Maryland with a rock. Stop by and see what they are catchin', where they are fishin' and what is bitin'..........

Think the fish will be safe in these floods or blown down to the bay? in 96 the flood blew out the rivers like this and at least in the cacapon (much smaller wv river) the rebound was noticable. only positive was that crappie and LMB showed up in teh river where they had never been before. Im hoping we get some muskie or channel cats this time.

I think most of them find a place to tuck in out of the main flow and ride it out. No doubt some river fish do get over stressed in a high water event like this and perish.
I'm just guessing but early spring high water events are probably harder on the bass as their body condition would be run down from the long lean winter.

Most fish can ride out a flood event with no problems. There are some losses but there are lot's of places for them to hide. Smaller waterways definitely get impacted more though. They have had millions of years of living in the water to practice. Otherwise we would have lots of dead rivers with every flood we see. And we have seen plenty the last 2 falls.
