    A buddy and I are planning to head out to the Susky on Friday evening around 6'ish (it's not firm yet).

    We are going to meet up and bank fish at the Muddy Creek Boat Launch on the York County shore.

    If you want to drop by, feel free!

    More details later.

    It doesn't seem to be good, but I am not too good at this cat fishing thing it seems.

    I was out tonight. Fishing bluegills, shiners, worms. On the bottom and on a float. All I caught was another min-channel.

    Ever try Wissler Run Park (across the river at the Muddy Run plant)? I may start trying there.

    well shoot until you find that great spot on the river head over to my neck of the woods and we will fish the reservoir... and i hear through the grape vine that where fishing creek dumps into the susky is a sweet spot... somebody almost called me a clown for telling them i was going to the Octoraro when i was catching bait (actually fishing for trout) at fishing creek
    but i heard that spot is a party spot for the underagers too so i havent tried it out yet

    I used to fish that area A LOT. But since the railroad decided to be difficult and posted the entire Lancaster County shore line, you can't fish there. That is, unless you have a boat, which i don't. I used to fish off the top of the tunnel along the railroad bed.

    The Pequea Creek outlet into the Susky is another good spot I hear.

    I tried Wissler Run 2 weeks ago and the current was extremely strong. There is also ALOT of rocks down there to contend with.

    I can share the water depths out there....

    If you at Wissler Run park just south of the main road in, there is a place to fish where the creek comes in.

    That water there gradually drops to 7 feet. Then a sharp dropoff to 35'. Then, believe it or not, it drops to 100 feet in the main channel for the power plant discharge. I confirmed this with a depth finder twice.

    In that 7-35' transition the current isn't too bad. Farther out it's horrible and the rocks are pretty bad.
