Schoharie Creek.... Just Let Your Soul Glo!
Walking down to the Schoharie Creek you cant help but notice the impact of the flood of 2011. The entire county far and wide has signs everywhere of the devastation that occured.
Trees down all along the rivers edge.
Gorged out shore lines.
Beautful small mouth bass.....
And of course....
The view is beautiful as always..
Resiliency is what can give a creek its soul or completely diminish it. I have found no other body of fresh water so mysterious, illusive, or stubborn. We have taken (or given) many kicks and jabs to this fishery and she holds on strong and determined; shaking her fist at pollution, weather, waste water, improper agriculature, soil erosion, etc.
Oh yeah, the smallmouth are back this year.... alot of the little guys are dead due to the flood and their parents are pissed and ready for a fight.
