Talking Great News!

Having been raised in north east PA, it was great to hear about all the reclamation that has gone on. I never fished the Lehigh but do remember where it went under the highway on the road from Scranton to Mount Pocono. That was over 50 years ago and at that time the area around there was still quite wild and beautiful. That area was apparently above the pollution and I do recall a lunker brown of 24" was taken in that stretch at the time. I was never aware of the down river pollution so I'm grateful that someone took the time to post this reclamation report.
