Something shockingly fishy is happening at creek camp
After seeing what was up…stream today we, along with the Tim and Freeman from the Pa. fish and boat commission, went fish shocking. Fish shocking is when one uses an electrified probe to send an electrical pulse through the water momentarily stunning the fish making them float to the surface where they can be easily scooped up by us. Why do we do this you might ask? We do this to survey the different types of fish in the body of water in order to know the health of the water and to see if they’re holding fish that can be sport fished, such as the stocked rainbow trout and small mouth bass. The creek, Woodcock creek, birthed magnificent results containing both of these fish and many other fish that are pollution intolerant that indicate a healthy creek. We thank the fish and boat commission for coming out and helping us with this.
