    well do appreciaye the info been seeing the same thing at 5 and 6, the only good thing ive seen is the river looks cleaner than it did several years ago and the fishing in some spots have improved ive not seen any bad from the fish and that stuffs been in the rivers for years and so far the effect has not been damaging as of to date that could change but its like everytime you turn around there some kind of chemical or something to worry you ,several years ago we had fishsteria or somehting like it and now hopefully its played out ,BUT UNTIL THE FISH GLOW IN THE DARK ILL BE FISHING FOR THEM, HECK THEN I MIGHT HUNT THEM, thanks for the info brother

    Right now the bigger problem is silting in.
    Years of heavy construction in the Raleigh area has caused severe silting and its still causing silting.
    Everything under the sun rides this silt down the river.

    Stop the silting and you prevent alot of PCBs from entering the river.

    I remember when the river wasn't brown or reddish brown.
