Trying to save the state tree also helps Pennsylvania trout

>>>Pennsylvania fishermen like Russ Collins are worried about trees.

He lives in Palmyra, Lebanon County, and is the vice president of Trout Unlimited's southcentral chapter. He wonders whether a struggling tree species could ultimately endanger one of the top fishing grounds in the country, if not the world.

Collins sees first-hand how the iconic Eastern hemlock — Pennsylvania's state tree — is dying off. A stand of hemlocks in his backyard is all but gone despite efforts to combat a bug that slowly sucks the life from them.

He also points to a two-mile stretch of water in Dauphin County where hemlocks are dying off every 40 feet or so. It's gotten so bad that the fallen giants have jammed up a section of Clarks Creek.

ex - I'm not going to live with you through one more fishing season!
me -There's a season?

Pastor explains icons to my son: you know like the fish symbol on the back of cars.
My son: My dad has two fish on his car and they're both trout!
