We set up camp and cooked steak and potatoes on an open fire. We sat around the fire as the stars flickered and trains passed drinking a few Coronas with lime (except Scott). We slept beneath the stars and sound of rushing waters and cruising trains. In the morning we fixed a breakfast of eggs, cornbeef hash, country sausage and pancakes with OJ to ready us for a full day of fishing and floating. We floated and fished till around 4:30 when we made our final landing at the 460 bridge.
We all caught plenty of smallies ranging from 6 inches to 16 inches. Bill claims he lost the big one. We fished with flukes, rubber worms and tiny torpedo's. By taking our time and fishing along the banks we were able to hook and release at least 60 smallies between us. What a way to spend a Fathers Day and celebrate Scott's 17th birthday. Each year he and his dad go camping and this year they were kind enough to invite me. Of course I had the canoe and carried the camping equipment but I still enjoyed it anyway.
Your exit is at the 460 bridge before Celense there is a new boat access point under the 460 bridge. You can park your take out vehicle in the Wades Grocery Store Parking lot.
