Store Events:

USGS Flow: There are no in-stream gauges to provide flow rates. Our stream condition updates are provided by employees where possible or come from local guides and customer reports.

Conservation Note: ANGLERS VISITING OUR AREA: Specifically those of you who just fished the Delaware River (or other streams in the NY Catskill Region), the Farmington in Connecticut, or Maryland's Gunpowder River, Please clean your boots and waders with a diluted bleach solution OR hot water(must be over 140 degrees f) and laundry detergent - It must soak for at least 30 minutes to be effective. DIDYMO has been identified in these watersheds. Another option is to purchase a second pair of boots and waders to wear only in infected waters. It's the only sure way not to spread DIDYMO. Please be responsible - Don't spread DIDYMO TO Central Pennsylvania!

General: Remember that fishing is closed in the Cabin Water on Sundays. Call or stop by our State College location for more information on access, hatches, etc.
