Our camp is in Lake City, way up above the Clarion. Thanks for the info. There is a gang of friends up there now. Canoeing is maybe not gonna be on the list of fun things to do this weekend. Hope the Halton Hilton is OK !

Any info about 555 in the hicks run - dents run area?
Heard dents run was inacessable from 555!
Some serious damage to the lower sitting camps along there.

We're all here because we're not all there!!

I'm not sure, but I was out at my buddy's camp on Winslow hill for a little while yesterday, and had no trouble getting there....

Re: Major Flooding in Elk County

All is fine with camp taterjack. Besides some washed out road ditches around camp looked good. Looked like the pharmacy in Ridgway took the worst of it near as I could tell. The Hallton was fine as well. Just made to the parking lot. Saw my 4th bear of the year. Went right up along side camp taterjack.

Re: Major Flooding in Elk County

The creek behind my camp came up the closest it ever has. The high water mark was about 3 feet from my back porch. It even changed the topography of the stream a little bit. The creeks were still running high and slightly stained over the weekend.

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

Re: Major Flooding in Elk County

Fished Pigs Ear Saturday morning, did alot of walking only caught one native. You could definitely see where the creek was over its banks. Yard was pretty much a sponge. Neighbor was up all week he said they got about 4 inches of rain in an hour. Wanted to go into Ridgway but never did make it The Clarion was still high but on the way home Sunday it looked like Redbank had come down alot.
