All day fishing adventure on Muddy Creek & The Susquehanna River
I absolutely LOVE when new people join the crazy-train that is TinBoatTravels. On this particular trip, we welcomed Kenny to the fold. And what an entrance he made! After this one day of fishing, we'll all laugh every time we hear the three simple words ..... "Just Show Up."
That's what we told Kenny to do, and that's exactly what he did. He showed up with nothing but coffee and a smile. And wouldn't you know it, he caught a handful of trout and caught the biggest smallie out of the group (doesn't matter that it was the ONLY smallie). He also proved that the only thing you need to catch fish on a cold rainy morning in April is a second hand rod with a broken reel, a pair of Crocs, and some boxer shorts. Seriously. You can't make this stuff up. Oh, and Josh found a log ... and shopping in Wal-Mart in waders is apparently normal ... and you only notice porta-potties when they AREN'T there.
Anyway, it was another fantastic adventure. Memories were definitely made. Check out the video.
What to Expect:
- Meet at the Woodbine Bridge at 5:30AM - c'mon, it's not THAT early.
- Catch trout all morning and meet back at the bridge around noon.
- Drive 15 minutes to the Cold Cabin Public Park on the shores of the Susquehanna for a picnic FEAST!
- After lunch, choose your own adventure. Explore Muddy Creek for more trout fishing, or launch your boat on the Susquehanna river and chase smallmouth bass.
What to Expect:
- What is the trout fishing like? Muddy Creek is a very scenic and remote trout stream. It winds through thick forest and offers miles of water to explore. You will need to be in the water, so bring waders. You can use fly-fishing gear or spinning tackle. Certain portions are stocked heavily by the local chapter of TroutUnlimited. Other areas are more difficult to get to and have wild trout. All PA laws apply, so bring your license.
- What is it like to fish on the Susquehanna? The river is big, wide, and powerful. It's also full of rocks and ledges. It's not necessarily easy to fish, but the smallmouth fishing can be great. There are also walleye and catfish in the section by Cold Cabin.
- What kind of boat do I need for the Susquehanna and how is the ramp? The ramp is free and fine for launching small to medium sized fishing boats. In this section of the river you'll want something with a motor. The current is pretty strong and I wouldn't want to have to paddle back upstream.
- What if I don't have a boat? Ride with the guys who do. There will be plenty of room.
- What should I bring for lunch? The picnic feast is as much fun as the fishing! Bring whatever you want, including gas grills, steaks, BBQ chicken, desserts, etc. We'll hang out for about two hours, maybe more. At the park there are a few picnic tables, a porta-potty, plenty of shade, and a fantastic view out over the river. Bring a comfy camp chair too.
- How do I get there? You can either meet at Jordan's at 4AM, or meet up with everyone at the Woodbine bridge in Woodbine, PA. There are obvious pull-over parking spots right around the bridge. If you are towing a boat, there are spots but you might have to get creative.
- What if I can't stay all day? No problem. Come for as much or as little of the adventure as you like.
- Can I bring my kids? Sure. But remember that moving water, especially the Susquehanna, can be very dangerous. I'd recommend teens or older.
- How much does it cost? Just what you spend on food and a fishing license.
- What if it's cold or rainy? Dress for it! This adventure is rain or shine baby.
