Down The River IV
July 19-20, 2019
Same details as last year, with two major changes:
1) We will be launching at Clemson Island instead of Montgomery Ferry.
2) Everyone will be responsible for their own food and beverages.
Down The River III
Friday & Sturday, July 20-21
A Susquehanna River Adventure
Fishing * Bird Watching * Canoeing * Camping * Swimming
Details (READ THIS STUFF)
- Meet at Montgomery Ferry Ramp at 5AM! Yes, I know that's early. But in the summer the absolute best fishing happens before the sun hits the water.
- We have a hotel room reserved for Thursday night in Harrisburg. Please thank my brother Josh for that. And by thanks, I mean give him some green. The room can hold 5 ish guys. It might get cozy.
- Spring Hill Suites by Marriott in Harrisburg
- 15 Capital Drive at I-81 Progress Avenue Exit 69, Harrisburg, PA 17110
- Food that is provided:
- Friday lunch: Hot dogs, apple sauce, cheese & crackers
- Friday dinner: Grilled chicken, patato salad, cookies
- Saturday breakfast: Eggs and bacon
- Bring your own beverages and additional snack items
- Don't forget: Sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, small chair, sleeping pad, sleeping bag, small pillow
- DO NOT OVERPACK. You don't need extra clothes. You don't need 40 pounds of tackle. You don't need ridiculous camping gear like axes, lanterns, tarps or any of that other stuff that is incredibly useful. Pack lean and mean. You will thank me when you're shoving a 1,200 pound boat off a rock ledge in heavy current.
- We will be back to shore in Marysville a little before noon on Saturday. Typically we grab lunch at the dinner and then head home.
- As it stands now, the boat assignments are as follows:
- Jordan's Jet: Jordan, Josh, Aaron (Josh's son)
- Matt's Marauder: Matt, Mike, Chad
- Ryan's River Runner: Ryan, Ethan (Ryan's son)
- If there is anyone else you think would enjoy the trip, please invite them. I have a spare boat they could use if they have any experience.
- Two day float trip down the Susquehanna River, camping one night on an island.
- 5AM launch on Friday morning at the Montgomery Ferry boat ramp. Drive up early, or get a hotel Thursday night.
- Gather for a shore lunch mid-day.
- Camping on a state approved public island South of Duncannon on Friday night. (State camping site 83a)
- Float to Marysville on Saturday, taking out around lunchtime.
- Blue Mountain Outfitters in Marysville can be used to shuttle your vehicle back down from Montgomery's Ferry. Contact them directly for details. It costs around $45 per vehicle.
- Bring your own boat. We recommend a canoe, kayak, or flat bottom jon boat. Paddles are fine, but a motor can come in very handy at times. An anchor is also highly recommended. Life jackets are required.
- You must sign up as a boat team of at least two people. We will not allow boats with just one person. It isn't safe. Kayaks are an exception. If you want to go but don't have a boat or a partner, contact Jordan. We'll get you squared away.
- For camping, bring a tent, sleeping bag, cooking gear, and food. Pack plenty of water as it's not good to drink the river water.
- Be prepared to get wet! Some of the best fishing takes place by beaching your boat and wading.
- Don't like to fish? No problem! Just enjoy a relaxing float down one of the most scenic waterways in the country.
What to Bring (or Just Show Up - that'll work too)
- Two fishing poles with good reels and 6-10 lb line
- Assortment of lures for smallmouth bass ... spinners, crank baits, tubes, senkos, spinnerbaits, topwater, jigs
- Assorted clothing and footwear for two days on the water - rain gear recommended
- Hat, sunglasses, sunblock .... you can get fried in a tin can floating on the water for two days straight
- Sleeping stuff - pillow, bag, ground pad (the ground is hard and uneven), teddy bear, whatever - tents will be coordinated as a group
- Water bottle and lots of water
- Small camp chair if there is room in your boat
- Snacks and lunch for Friday. Saturday breakfast and dinner will be provided.
- Some sort of sealed container or bag for phones, wallets, cameras etc.
- Things to AVOID - anything big, bulky, or heavy - they take up room in the boats - pack light and small - most guys wear shorts and a t-shirt that are quick dry, then bring a rain coat and rain pants. Big heavy coolers like Yeti's aren't needed for a one night trip. One decent cooler bag per boat is all we really need.
