City Island 8/11/17
« on: August 12, 2017, 01:43:44 PM »
My friend Steve and I launched at 6:30 AM and ran straight up to the ledge above I 81.  The gauge at Harrisburg was at 4.09 feet.  The water was still pretty stained and 77.5 degrees.  We fished  near the east side for a half hour without a strike so we moved over about 2/3 and found the water to be less stained but after about 45 min. and still no strikes we started to drift.  About half way to 81 we caught few down to the bridge.  After that I ran down to the Riverfront View Apts. Where we started to catch a few while bouncing off the rocks.  What a difference between 4.3 feet and 4.09 feet. We made three drifts through there and packed it in.

We ended the day with Steve boating 11 while I landed a meager 3, all on soft jerk baits.  I always seem to be out fished by my guest but at least I always catch the biggest one.  The pics are each of our best.






The older I get, the better I used to be.

The pic of me is between I 81 and the ledge south of Fort Hunter.  The pic of Steve is at the Riverfront View Apts. with the Harvey Taylor bridge in the background.

Nice job again. Was up there tonight again, nothing moving but the white flies. Also the mud line was on the west shore this time. About 3" of visibility again. Was within 4" of wading height last night. After the rain in perry and Juniata counties last night, It is about 4.5' in Harrisburg again.
