July 8, 2002: I
fished the Juniata River on the west (south?) side above Duncannon from
10:30-4:30 on July 6th and caught a number of smallmouth in the 10-13"
range. Most took a weighted black hellgrammite pattern but I got a few on olive
wooly buggers. One double. I got them in faster water as well as in some slow
deep pools above a rock dam. Water was clear and wading was a chore on the
slippery uneven bottom. Saw a few spin fishers but only one fly fisher in
the area I fished.
30, 2002: Joe
King and I fished for Stripers on the Susquehanna Flats on April 24th at Havre
de Grace. From 6am till noon we didn't catch a fish. But then Captain Larry's
partner Norm Bartlett radioed us to come over to where he was because they were
starting to catch some schoolies. As soon as we got over to where Norm and his 2
clients were the catching started. For about 2 hours Joe and I were into
fish-nothing big-71/2 lbs was the largest. We just drifted over the area and
cast chartreuse or chartreuse and white streamers or jigs. On 3 occassions we
both had fish on. After a couple of hours of catching and missing fish, they
stopped hitting and we didn't catch a fish the rest of the day. Overall it was
great day to have been out there and catch some stripers on the fly.
