BigCliff, would studded Aquastealth fall into this category?

Hi Fishplease,

That is not necessarily true. If you are wading with boots, shoes or socks you can pick up the spores. If you are using a boat with a trailer you could also have a problem. If the spores are in the water there may be a number of ways for you to pick them up and transport them to other waters.

hey cliff actually around here its not that slippery. I mean I have almost fell a few times. more when I first started wading. now I learned to take every step with precaution. slow very slow! the thing most to worry about here is not stepping in the muck and sinking a foot or so! lol. wonder if there is a way to get rid of that disease. prolly not. in my river there are all kinds of things! tires, water heaters, saw blades, transmissions, and all the good stuff. its a shame....

Apologies Cliff, didn't mean to sound like I was jumping down your throat. Two issues in Maryland that make me see red is whirling disease and brook trout management.

The DNR site has some info posted on how to prevent the spread. Most of the waterways have also been posted with a sign depicting the life cycle of whirling disease, and then it basically says to wash all gear, including your boat throughly.

I think it would be great if there was wash stations, especially at the NB. Some days I like many other folks like to hit up several streams in a day. It is near imposable to scrub down in between.

Here in Colorado have seen infected fish in years past but this year have not, I got a flyer from DOW saying to use 409 straight on waders and boot and leave set for at least 15 minutes, they say this is affective at killing the spores, they gave several other options as well, but 409 is qwick and easy. Generally I'm on the some river all day so clean up is when I get home. I use a large RubberMaid box to haul boots and waders and wash it each time also.
