Had a nice time up at Blue Marsh Lake yesterday. Hopefully getting out on the river 1 or 2 days before Memorial day.

What was the water temperature? Warm enough to get in? That's the closest lake to me. I live near Harrisburg.

We were at Beltzville Lake sunday for a few hours. Water was still too chilly for me, but the kids got in and tubed a bit.

Blue marsh was chilly but doable for a short period. The hot and humid air and the beating sun made to colder water a bit more tolerable!

If I'd known about them sooner I would've gone. Unfortunately, we made other plans at this point.

Anyone know what the deal with Burlington Island is? Used to be that it was prohibited to be on the island, but lately we've been seeing tons of boats beached there or tied up just offshore, and nobody seems to mind.

I know they have been doing a few clean up projects on the island this year removing a lot of trash and scrap that was dumped there. Not sure if they have anything planned for the island in the future. I've never stopped there because of the prohibited signs.

I was just about to post the same thing. Didn't look terrible from 295 this morning, but as things start flushing out should be dicey for a couple days. Planning to go out Sunday, if anyone goes out Saturday please share some intel!

If its too windy to go fishing on Sunday out in the ocean or shark river, I might try for either Barnaget bay or just the river. Flooding in Montgomery County has been decent. Pennypack creek is pretty wild and partially flooded some of my works lot... Don't even want to think about what the river will be like.

It looks like more of the same type of weather and storms early next week as well. Hopefully this pattern changes!

Its kind of funny with the weather and all, but I'll be busy Saturday training a new water rescue team.

I might take a quick ride out on the wave runner on Saturday evening just to check things out.
I am supposed to have a couple of kids and their parents from my sons soccer team come out with us on Sunday so I just want to check the river is ok.

@D3nN1s what ramp do you use at Barnegat Bay? We've been playing with the idea of going out down there but Im pretty clueless where to go

Barnegat Twp has a public ramp it’s on east bay ave. 10$ for the day, plenty of parking, wide ramp, bathrooms... plus it’s a nice straight shot to the lighthouse and inlet. Low tide offers a couple nice sandbars and during high tide you can always anchor just off of island beach state park across from the lighthouse. The channels are all pretty well marked but if you have navionics on your phone you’ll be fine...

Last time we were up there we checked out forked river. Looked really nice, had a couple restaurants with boat slips, but we couldn’t check them out cause we had the pup with us. I snapped a pin on the below photos so you can get an idea where it’s at. 9738497385

The Tiki Bar at Forked River is pretty good, nice waterfront seating so you can have lunch and watch the boats go by. Thanks for the ramp intel, I was trying to scout it out when I was at the Tiki Bar for Fathers day, but only saw a couple sketchy looking ones with really limited parking.

Yeah probably one of the ones we passed by, they had a jimmy buffet cover band playing on a small beach area... this ramp is township owned I believe and has someone there whenever they are open. I’ve never had a problem there (Besides the green heads when they are out). There’s also a fishing/ crabbing area there and sometimes live music...

Ok, I'll bite, what's a greenhead? New term to me.....

Edit: quick google search, it's a fly, not just a new term for a Conservation Officer. I think we refer to them as horseflies up here; or maybe they're not the same thing?
