Nebraska bridge

Taken Sunday March 20th


Looking upstream from close to the bottomo of Jughandle road


Water levels are down about 5 feet from a week ago.

Plenty of scouting and good habitat makes for a great hunt.

Re: Nebraska bridge

Found out today that the state is going to put some money into the bridge and reopen it.

Re: Nebraska bridge

Thats great news news! I didnt think it was going to get fixed anytime soon after fast Eddie decimated the states coffers!

Re: Nebraska bridge

Personally I think it kind of wasteful spending to just fix the rocker bearings unless there is going to be some measure taken to prevent debris from slamming the structure and pushing it off its rockers again. No pun intended.

To construct a new bridge and approaches to a proper elevation and hydraulic opening would be HUGE $$$$$$$.

Re: Nebraska bridge

in contrast, here is a shot from October 2010. Thats alot of water...




How is the lower dam area affected when they pond this much water? How high would this be in the boat launch / marina area?

I've always wanted to road trip up to see tionesta, first fork Sinn., kettle impoundments during the spring flow.

I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth. <span style="font-style: italic">3 John 1:4</span>

Re: Nebraska bridge

I've seen it where the upper parking lot to the main launch ramp was flooded and once in March we saw what would accurately be called a huge iceberg teetering on the top of the bridge. Two weekends ago, from 36 going up the hill, the water was 2/3 up the dam from the normal summer pool.

Re: Nebraska bridge

Last monday the water was clean up over the signs by the big parking lot and then by last friday the water went down to where the big parking lot was, but only enough to turn a truck around...very impressive, thats the highest ive ever seen it...just by looking at the water we thought the bridge was totally gone, but I guess not!

Pa Hunting-It's a natural high!
