Very true, surf.

When I was about to graduate college, I told some of my classmates at Pitt that when they are sitting there in the civic arena waiting to stand up when their class is announce, that I would be sitting along some river with a fishing pole in one hand, and a beer in the other.

I did EXACTLY that, and my mother never forgave me.

BTW, it was a Miller High Life. "Champagne of beers."

Regarding section to float, I tend to agree that a shorter section would be better and allow for more fishing and less rowing.

Perhaps the section from Halifax down to Clemson Isl(?). This is about three miles or so. I've not floated that section however, but it might make for a nice half-day trip.

Any thoughts Krayfish?

Any progress on dates? If the rains hold off, conditions should be perfect next weekend (19-20th).

I'm for getting this beat-down over with quickly.

The River is finally down to a decent level and I'm on vacation next week and have a rare weekend off on both Saturday the 19th and Sunday the 20th.

The monsoon season may still not be over, so if those dates work...let's do it!

Kray and I have settled on a decent stretch of river near Duncannon (the precise location of the drift should be kept secret until after the Rumble).

Conditions may be perfect next weekend, but we may face 2 problems: first, Fred may not be able to make himself available; second, I may be unavailable (but this is unconfirmed).

Andy & Dave W,

Fred and Derek are both probable for Saturday the 19th. They will be able to confirm on Monday.

What say you?

Looks like I can do it.

If I attend, I'd likely just meet and greet at the put in and take out...but might tag along in my canoe.

Wouldn't want to get in the way of any beat-down yuh know. Gonna be rough.

Heading in the right direction, but rain later in the week may blow it out. Just have to wait and see.

If I go fishing Saturday, I believe the girlfriend will leave me. Here's hoping and I'm in pending decent conditions. At least 2' of visibility would be nice for a change.

I didn't go through all the posts, but if it hasn't been advised, please use barbless hooks.

Since all size bass are being counted, keep in mind that small, young bass are susceptible to severe damage from barbed hooks. Please consider that those are the stock that will reach somewhat decent size three to four years' from now.

Also consider that the relentless heavy rains most likely have pretty well upset spawning this year, so I would expect a pretty good pop. slump several years from now.

Drove over the river just a few minutes ago. Dropping and surprisingly clean looking in spite of the heavy rains. By late in the week, she might be clear which would be amazing.

A lot of ideas. How 'bout the KISS system since we're not accountants...measuring all fish and point system for each is a little crazy.

Smallies only...not interested in fishing for fallfish or catfish, and fly-fishing only (Andy and Surf have to surrender their spin equipment at the launch).

The category system below blend all the ideas in past posts, and no need to measure unless fish are 15" or greater, also no point system needed.

Most fish means something, as well as bigger fish, and the biggest fish.

Winner judged by winning two or more categories:

1. Most smallies any size - so numbers count

2. Most smallies 15" or greater - so bigger fish count

3. Biggest smallie - so hunting for a slammer is in play too

This way you won't just fish for numbers or only focus on big fish...both are equally important. It keeps everyone on their toes.

Should be fun.

Hopefully the River Gods see fit to hold off on unleashing another monsoon.
