There is nothing I hate more than guys that copy other people’s posts but after seeing this video this morning I’m going to hope epic Troutmaster Troutrageous! Mike will forgive me for stealing this.
Turns out there was a sewage spill in Valley Creek last weekend.
The video below states that there hasn’t been a fishkill (yet) but most likely the effects of the spill won’t really take hold until months from now.
If you fish Valley Creek for its beautiful Wild Brown Trout, you may not want to watch the video below. It made me sick to my stomach.

I know this shouldn’t need to be said, but I’d caution anyone from wading downstream from where the “incident” occurred. Don’t tie knots with your mouth, and for heavens sake, stay away from “surface feeding (or should I say floating) varieties of “brown trout”!
Help spread the word about this incident. I tend to be a bit of a news hound but this one almost slipped under the radar. You’d think the headline:
“Raw Sewage Spill In Valley Forge National Park”
would be a big deal…
Will you think twice about fishing Valley Creek now that it’s filled with sewage? Have you ever caught the other variety of “Brown Trout?” Do you think news about “The Situation” going into rehab is more important than a raw sewage spill in a national park? Let us know in the comments below!
