Man! Its bad enough finding good lakes around here to fish in without having to drive an hour! Now Blackwood and Grenlock are going to be gone?
YEA thats it....I fished there back in the late 60s to early 70s. was a very nice area back then, the edge of the pines ,before all the developement, The lake side had some nice LM in it, and the stream below the dam was stocked,,,I dont know what it looks like now, hold any fish etc....??? I think the dam washed out and changed it and silt from roads etc must have taken a toll over the years of development,,,,,?????I think the stream you speak of was/is called Lebanon Run. I remember seeing people along the edges trout fishing back in the 70's.
I drove past Grenloch yesterday and the stench of fuel was overbearing (and all I did was drive by it). They had some pumping equipment, don't know what they are doing - if they are pumping the water out completely or just through a filter or what. But just the smell alone and you can tell its bad. It wouldn't surprise me if that lake is going to be dead for a few years before it can come back.I passed Blackwood Lake yesterday; it is only 1/2 mile from my house. There was a Haz/mat truck set up with a floating wall across the lake just in front of the dam. Did not see any dead wildlife or any oily sheen on the water but it gve me the creeps. Our clubs Lunker came from Blackwood Lake last year. Just really sad.
