Last minute warm water jam (organized on FB...now extended to the greater PAFF community)

TODAY, Sunday July 7th. 5pm at County Park in Lancaster. After going into the main entrance, take an immediate left and drive down to where the road is gated. We will be fishing the Conestoga from that area upstream to the Duke St bridge. We're chasing any and all uglies! Carp, smallies, panfish, no chubs allowed, and yes they do stock muskie in this stretch of the 'Stoga.

Have fun. I may try to make it if I'm home from a cookout in time, but I doubt it will work. Wish I would've known! Hope to see some good pics!

Curious to know if this took place? Guessing not as some heavy rain storms moved through the area around that time yesterday. The Conestoga was finally starting to clear but it muddied up again after the rain.

May be interested if you try to organize another one.

Yeah it happened. RickinPA, Tim Robinsin, Sal and myself showed up. We pounded streamers (all kinds of streamers). I hear Sal brought 2 to hand, but that was it. Water was definitely off color. Wading was tough as you couldn't see the bottom most times.

We'll definitely try this again on a clearer day.

I'll try plan "round 2" a little further out. This really did just materialize on facebook almost instantly. We were going to go Saturday but my wife but the ax to that, so we decided to go Sunday.

The Conestoga is best right around 150 CFS and after the turbidity has settled a bit. It's been so rainy lately that it hasn't had a chance to settle down.

Also, FWIW, muskies are only stocked upstream of the Water works:

Conestoga River

COCALICO CK CONF: Lat: 40.11476000, Long: -76.22647900

LANC WATERWORKS DAM: Lat: 40.05112900, Long: -76.27639000

Year Species Lifestage #Stocked

Squatch,

Keep us posted. I am very interested in hooking up with you guys some evening. Sounds like a good time. I was actually planning on fishing that same stretch of the 'Stoga on Saturday (the evening before you guys hit it) but at the last minute I opted to explore a different section of Mill Creek in that area and did fairly well nymphing a hellgramite pattern in the faster water.

Can anyone post simple hellgramite patterns, by the way?
