Biologist reports logo South Branch Roaring Creek
(Stocked Area)

Columbia & Northumberland Counties
June 21-25, 2004

Area 4 biologists completed a survey on the stocked trout area of the South Branch of Roaring Creek, Columbia and Northumberland Counties, during the week of June 21, 2004. The stocked area on the South Branch is downstream from Knoebels Grove. As was the case with the main stem of Roaring Creek, a large number of hatchery trout remained in the South Branch from an in-season planting during the week of May 17. Holdover and wild browns were also present. We found brown and brook trout up to 17 inches long. Stream temperatures and flows up to this point have allowed some great early summer stocked trout opportunities, but angling pressure on the South Branch was light during the week of our survey.
