May I suggest....

Saturday April 21st at Susquehanna State Park at Lapidum.

This is in MD on the west bank and is located at Deer Creek, and about halfway between Conowingo Dam and the Susky Flats. Camping is available.

Since the water conditions on the river and flats is dicey in April, the 21st allows the 28th as a rain date. Link up point could be the bridge at Deer Creek (you'll know the hickorys are in because it will be hard to park).

Wading anglers can focus on Deer Creek or the main river. I think there is a boat ramp fee at the park. I would likely take my yak down the street to Havre de Grace to access the flats (if you're a wildlife art fan or waterfowl hunter, don't skip the Decoy Museum while you're in the area). This might be a workable plan.

Disclaimer: it has been a few years since I've been down there and I'd happily defer to a more knowledgeable participant.

I like Dave's plan. He's got the details that are going to make this thing happen.

Dave Thank You.
Justin and I really want to do this but had no starting point.
I was gonna research it more this weekend and try to finalize something. You bought me fishing time

I say Daves plan is offical.

Rollcall:
Sal
Beefheart
Raftman?


Can someone make the thread title Susquehanna Striper/Shad Jam Saturday April 21st @ Susquehanna State Park @ Lapidum.

Come join us!

I'm gonna be in a great mood. Just set me up against anything that swims. Spring is coming!

I'll have my seaghost 130 ready for a madien voyage.
i was just 2 sick for too long early and late last year. Flows on the Susquehanna kept me on trout. I had a superb 2017 trout season. It sucks though I'm so cabin fever like on warmwater fishing.

I'll also have a n Old town Vapor Angler Yak for Justin. It's a nice sit in really and a speed demon. it will at least get you around and you can get out an fish. Its got a large cockpit so i think youll do ok.

I love good beer !

Incidntly, if this is an agreed upon thing I recommend beginning a new post or clearig all the deliberation and clutter. Plan and execute. Warm Water Insurgents assemble and dominate!

Hell I might even come down and tool around if you’ll have me.

I edited the title so I think we can stay with this thread.

Will need to review rules/regs; think we will need a Bay license and if you want to fish Deer Cr you will need a freshwater license. Also, I think for SB we will need to be down at the flats iot to target SBs. White perch are in the river in large numbers at this time too. There are some good restaurants in Havre de Grace if we want to do b-fast or dinner.

Hey Sal, don't forget your new switch rod. This would be a good place as roll casting will be to your advantage if we are stuck close to shore under trees and with lots of other anglers.

I've got this date off but can't commit at this time - will have to wait till sooner before I can commit to join you guys.

Anyway - since we have a time and place, we can figure out the rules and details...and maybe start tying some shad flies.

I'm seriously considering it. My grandfather used to fish for shad in the Susky. Long enough who I don't think he had to go to MD by i could be mistaken.

Thanks Dave.

Ya I started reviewing license stuff. Looks like a non resident non tidal and tidal license required if you plan to fish both. I'm sure I have to also do some kind of permit or registration on my boats.
Cost is not really going to deter me. I'll just use it more.

Maurice of course, anyone is welcome.

My switch won't hold up against those very large stripers. But I plan on having a good time. They are fun rods.

Tom you dont. You could catch some a few dams up river in lesser numbers. I think conowigo dam catches fish and transport them up river.

Should come over and fish

That Saturday should work for me unless something comes up. I've got a Lure Kayak and an MD License, though I may have to pay for an add-on as I think it's just non-tidal/freshwater. I'll be sure to tack on a cooler to the yak... :)

Sal - you and Beefheart will probably be driving right past me so maybe I'll just caravan with yinz. It might even be easier to just meet at my place in Marietta and go from there. I have a Tacoma so I can fit a bunch of gear in the back if needed.
