Yes it has been years since I lived back there. I have been here for the past 31 years I retired out of the Navy and just stayed. I still have family back there. I have s sister in Mount Morris and a sister in Sabraton just outside of Morgantown WVA. So I do get back there once in awhile. You would think that the state would make them claen up thier mess or maybe they just don't give a crap as long as the money rolls in. are they doing it in Pa and WVa? do you know if they screwed up the Monogahella yet? My wife retires in March and we were thinking of towing out 20' Triton back there and doing some fishing on the river and then heading up to Maine for some good smallmouth action.
Harry the mon is so high in PCB's right now it aint funny. they do a water check for salmonella two to three times a month. its not only happening on the West Virginia Side, but the P.a. side as well. even though I am No tree hugger by all means, growing up in this area and fishing and hunting it all my life it saddens me to see it all go down.
what is nice though, is the fact that the Wv Dnr and the P.A. fish and game commission are working together finally to fight these people. if ya ever get back this way besure to check out the wma's at core west virginia, they ( wv dnr ) reclaimed ole mine lakes and cleaned them and made them into some great fishin!
