Aug 19 Texas Roadhouse

Saturday June 29th Fishing location changed from Susquehanna

Due to unsafe wading conditions on the Susquehanna River this week we will change the location of the outing this day to the Tulpehocken Creek, Northwest of Reading, PA.
We will plan to meet at the parking lot below the dam at Blue Marsh Lake at 9:00am.
Access to this  parking lot is off of Palisades Drive.
Sorry for the change in plans.  The water flows are too high in the Susquehanna River for safe wading.  A weeks time will not change these conditions sufficiently to be safe.
The flow conditions for the Tulpehocken Creek are not expected to cause further changes to these plans.
