Title: One week Difference.
Post by: troutman on December 16, 2020, 02:49:50 PM
Well what a Difference one week makes, last Friday I went out with my buddy and had 30 bass and two eyes in 37 degrees water temp. and yesterday I took a chance and went out to the same spot but the water temps where down to 32 Oh boy only had one bass and a few bites. Now as long as I been fishing you would think I would have figured that out! But you know when you got to go you got to go.

You can see the river on a webcam here:

I'm in central VA and usually come up a couple times a year to fish between Harrisburg and Selinsgrove. We didn't get any of the snow and was just curious what the area looked like with the snow on the ground. DRY sometimes shares pics, if not of the river, then his backyard with bird feeders.

Rain and high water in my neck of the woods so I'm not doing any fishing. I get my fishing/Susky fix through you guys.

I see the webcam is not working.  That may have something to do with the marina being closed.  Try again in a couple of days.  If it still doesn't work try after they open in January.

Up here at Williamsport the launches wasn't plowed last time I checked. Sunday 24" of snow.
The area around Maynard St. The river is froze all the way across.
Duck hunters will sometimes plow the launches. So they can launch and hunt.

Still not a whole lot of water up here.

They are now predicting flooding in HBG.  I don't know if that is factoring in the 40+ inches of snow Binghamton got that will be melting.  Either way it is a time to stay off the river.

Up here summer depth is normally 1.32"
With higher water I prefer 5' of water, just a nice height. At 8' I stay off the river.

Hope nobody gets flooded and be safe!

Looks like we're cresting @ 17.49. Under what they predicted.
Boy lots of crap floating down the river. Figure it's been May since we really had any high water.

Be Safe!!

The webcam is working again.  They had a hosting issue.  I find it very helpful to check for ice.

Nothing to report this week. No bank fishing and I am unable to launch do to debris on the launch.

Be careful New Years Day, looking like it's going to be a big ole skating ring.

River looks like it will be on the rise again this weekend. It's to suppose to get over 9' up here.
