Unfortunately we are still in winter condtions now into the 2nd week of spring in both Monroe and Carbon Counties.  My pup still has 5"s of snow on it and I will not be able to de-winterize it/sanitize with daily temps 17f to 31f :o
Odds are looking like we all are going to have to cancel if the weather doesn't rapidly change for the better by April 9th.
Another snow storm is set to hit the area Weds/Thurs this week.

Popped up over the weekend and have the pup opened.   April rains every day this week and Friday and Saturday look awfully wet on the forecast.   Ill be canceling our reservation unless a change occurs by Wednesday.

Looks like the normal first day of trout season. 70% chance of rain.

If it's not too much trouble, if anyone wants to post specific site reviews upon your return, I'd appreciate it as we might get up that way in the fall.  We camped there for several years with our tent, but haven't taken the PUP yet.

Thanks & good luck fishing!

Camping stuff is set to go, now I have to work on the fishing stuff and what food to bring.  Anybody have any special requests?

I bailed out and lost $10!  I wasn't planning on setting it up dry, rain all day Sat, and wet Sunday.
I'm heading over there 4/29 to 05/1.  Every few trout openers up here are awesome.  I'm a Monroe County lifer, and seen colder wet days win over the epic warm ones.   I can fish the Broadhead whenever or just cast away in the Delaware State Forest.  I pup to get away from the onslaught of touristas and give my mega commuting a$$ a break!

Enjoy the fishing.  Maybe next year I will join you. 

I will be at the Englishtown car show and swap meet in NJ.  My Dad, Brother, Cousin, and bro-in-law have been selling stuff there for the past 10 years.  Dad passed away last year so we have been liquidating the "inventory"  This is the last bit of stuff we have, I'm giving up my spots. 

I'd rather go camping or fishing.....My boat never even made it out of the back yard last year  :'(  At least I did go camping a few times  :crazydance:

I have the pup popped all week getting drenched.  Hopefully it dries up by Friday.   I'll fish rain or shine but pupping it again like the pic we posted earlier is not a fun weekend at all.

Sorry you won't make it but I don't blame you.  We are still going, figuring many people won't be out because of the forecast.

It has been raining cats and dogs for the past 13 hours.     I'm glad I backed out this year.  Last year was 10 times worse.

cold and rainy, man I am not sad I missed this trip!  All though a good roaring fire and a EZ UP have saved many a trip like I imagine this one is.

We actually had a pretty nice time.  Yes it poured HEAVILY most of the day Saturday, and the wind blew ridiculously hard Saturday night.  But we did manage a nice campfire Friday night, some great food, a little fishing (Joe R. wins the die-hard award for fishing in the sideways driving wind and rain and producing good results) and Joecamper and I even won a shuffle board game over some seasoned pros at the local bar.

With the breeze Sunday morning everything was dried out to pack up for the trip home.  All in all a nice weekend camping.

All in all, it was a great camping weekend.  Friday was beautiful, sweatshirt around the campfire.
Saturday morning was breezy and almost 40 degrees at 7am.  Started raining just after 12 noon.  Heavy rain, high wind into the evening.  My 12' kayak blow 10' away.  (High wind gizmos worked great)  Sunday was in the mid 40s and sunny.

It was must better then being at work.
