Default Moss

Am I just crazy and/or senile or is there an abundance of this moss floating thru the river? I don't ever remember it being this bad. I can't use a crankbait without pulling this stuff off after almost every retrieve. I was reading in the Kankakee forum that they're having a similar problem but theirs sounds much worse. Is it the same stuff?
Does anyone know anything about this? HELP!!

I was fly fishing in Oswego on Sunday and there was a heck of a lot of that floating stuff. I've gotten so used to weird things happening on the Fox that I haven't stopped to think about whether this is a new issue or not.

I agree it was definitely annoying, though!

It seems like we get it every year but it is worse than usual this year. Hard to say for sure why, but heres a theory: High flows this spring cause alot of the sediment to wash away. Less sediment means better than usual clarity. Better than usual clarity results in more light penetration which in turn causes more plant (moss) growth. Who knows....
