A late change to the schedule made it possible for another Regional Event in the North. This time, we’re headed to Shank’s Mare Outfitters in Wrightsville, PA for a showdown on the Susquehanna and Juniata Rivers where anglers are sure to find big bronze!
The largest option among the event boundaries is the Susquehanna River which flows South eventually to the Atlantic Ocean. Anglers will be able to fish this truly unique waterway the whole way from the Southwest tip of Packers Island to I-95. Those participating on this river will find just about everything from islands to boulders to areas over a mile wide!
The smaller river of the two is the Juniata River which also flows south meeting the Susquehanna in Duncannon, PA. This river may be fished from the 103 Bridge in Lewstown to the confluence with the Susquehanna. Anglers will find a river that is a couple hundred feet wide also with some scrub islands and boulders along the way.
Even I was fortunate enough to get into some of the action right around this time last year. These are some truly amazing waters, don’t miss this event.
