Thanks for the info. I can't say specifically what's dried up and whats
not since I'm new to this state and haven't had a chance to explore that
much. But, I hit Gunpowder last weekend, and even though it is being fed
by the dam, it was quite low. So I imagine most streams are suffering. We
did finally get rain today, though :->. I'll be trying out Tridelphia
Resevoir tomorrow night, since it's somewhat close to me, and has more
chance of having more water than most of the streams.

Thanks to all for the tidbits...
