Re: Ice Chunks on Susky, info needed
I know the West Branch gets spotty ice through the winter, but can be fished as long as you keep an eye on things, particularly the status of the launches. Sometimes the river is OK, but there is frozen mud/ice at the launch & people get stuck with trucks & boats(unfortunately I know). The area above the Hepburn Street Dam is iced over in a lot of spots. When the river rises the ice along the edges and from above the dam definitely enters the system. Right now it is pretty good in the flowing sections above Jersey Shore and below Williamsport. A few pieces of ice, but nothing major.
The North Branch ices up pretty good in a lot of areas & icebergs are common. A lot of people even ice fish the eddies on trhe North Branch. Right now it is pretty well iced. Not sure about the main stem, but it' probably a mixture, which may be why you see ice on half the river?
There is always a season!
