Flooding concerns ANF areas

unexpecyedly my ADT alarm went off this morning so I made the trip to camp in Sheffield this morning.
I traveled Blue Jay, 666 into Sheffield

Anyone with camps along Blue Jay especially creek side you might want to make a visit. Sheets of ice and water heavy flooding right down the road below Job Corp Rd. Tried to rescue a car that was stuck in it, but FD had to be called.

Anyone else prone to along the Tionesta Creek And itís branches,

Sheffield, Barnes, Brookston, Lynch, Mayburg all the way to Hickory you better get up and check. Itís bad up there

Good luck

I seen some pics of the road into Mayburg, no access, covered with water and chunks of ice, seen a couple pics of Salmon Creek Road flooded at Kellettville bridge, and a few pics of the old battle ax Nebraska Bridge taking the usual beating from the ice flow as it has for as long as I can remember.

Last year same day we had flooding. It was higher in Sheffield then. BUT other areas may be worse this year due to the ice. I will see if I can some how get the video of the Nebraska bridge ice.

Great video WS. My cabin sits high on Whig Hill, so I'm safe from the flooding. Hope there is no major damage to any of the camps this weekend

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

A guy who lives in my area, grew up in the Tionesta area, and he tells me stories of when he was in high school, him and a friend would canoe over top of the Nebraska bridge when it was completely underwater. He is 67 years old, so it would be 50 years ago.

Ill say. Every time this happens, and it happens a lot, when the water goes down and threes mud and logs and even big rocks piled on the bridge I always wonder how it stands up to it.
