Koinonia Guide Service, Susquehanna Fishing Report: 1/12/13

From Koinonia Guide Serice:
Hi Gang,
The river was at 4.7 at the beginning of the week and at the end of the week we had 4.5 with 24,100CF of flow and 34 degrees.  

1.      Trip #1 – Guide Scouting Trip – This was on Tuesday afternoon and I fished from 3:45 PM to 4:45 PM and I did not get a bite. I fished only jigs in one particular hole. We had 4.5 – Steady – 25,200CF – Clear and 33 degrees. We had a BP of 30.30 and falling.  

2.      Trip #2 – Guide Scouting Trip – This was on Saturday morning and we fished from 7:15 AM to 11:15 AM and we caught 40+ Walleye. The largest was 16.75” and we had 3 legal fish. We caught them on Jigging Spoons and Jig/Minnow combos. We had 4.5 – Steady - 24,100CF – Clear and 34 degrees. We had a BP of 30.0 and steady with fog..    

3.      Trip #3 – No Trip

4.      Trip #4 – No Trip

5.      Trip #5 – No Trip

6.      The last meeting we had at the Fish Commission was a good start towards pushing DEP to do something about the river. DEP had two representatives at this meeting but they did not impress with the information they provided. One of the disturbing things that came out of this meeting was the fact that there are chemicals in the water that DEP has not developed testing methods for. Therefore, the water companies can’t test for these chemicals so there is no way of knowing if they are in our drinking water or not. We all use water from the Susquehanna for one thing or another so whether you fish or not is irrelevant to the fact that we all need to push DEP to protect our water.
