Susquehanna River trip

A tough day stood in the Susquehanna River with only a couple of small mouth bass to show for our trouble. Last year’s flooding of the Susquehanna Basin was epic in its scale and I think it’s probably going to take a decade to get back to where it was. The number of huge trees uprooted and flung effortlessly downstream and onto the banks is truly amazing. Sadly, for the fisherman at least, I guess a huge amount of pesticides/fertilizer/phosphates has also gone into the river – that combined with the shallow water level and the hot weather –  it means large amounts of weed in the channel making it difficult to fish. Anyway here’s a short video of our day.
