There is a sand bar at the mouth of the channel.


Wednesday I came in and we had 55 knot winds.

I took some pictures of the lake, creek and the marina.

You can see the splash over the rocks at the mouth of the channel.

Also, here is one of the old boat launch. The water is over it.

And the launch ramps are almost covered. Needless to say, the creek is high and muddy.


Fourteen year old Matt Follador of Erie brought in a 8lb 8oz male for an angler award. He caught it on white sucker spawn.

Fifteen year old Travis Shaffer of West Sunbury caught his first Steel head. It weighed in at 6lb 3oz. He will get an angler award for first fish. He also caught his on white sucker spawn.


SAT: SW/30k/5-8 ft.
SUN: SW/5-10k/2-4 ft.
MON: S/10-15k/1-3 ft.

The building will be open only on, Friday, Saturday, and Sundays from 7:00 till 5:30. That is the schedule up until December 17th then the office building will be closed until April 15, 2005.


Because of the new pricing, no more 2004 licenses will be sold.

If you were born in 1939 or before you are eligible for a lifetime license and you might want to get it now. Licenses for 2005 will not be on sale until January 1, 2005. You can get the lifetime licenses at the Court House and the other licenses can be found as of January 1, 2005 in any store that sells licenses now. We will not be open from December 17, until April 15, 2005, so you can't get them here until April 15th when I come back.

There is also an increase in agent fees. It was .75 for licenses and .50 for stamps. Now it is $1.00 each.
