    I wanted a low trailer for getting back into the woods. ... also have a cap on the truck. ... one thing about my trailer vs you guys with fifth wheelers.... you have a lot more outdoor storage. Other than that I am very happy with my camper.

    Is that bridge by any chance visible from I-80? There is/was one that looked a whole lot like that up there years ago. Is Kinzua the reservoir that's shared with NY?

    :1036316054: How's the walleye fishing there? I would have high expectations of that lake if I went there. Been to Raystown and thoroughly enjoyed it and have always wanted to check out the Kinzua. Have you ever heard of the Pepacton Reservoir in NY? Another similar like I'd love to visit.

    Here's enough to get you started on it. It is a NYC public water reservoir so there are some restrictions and you need a special terrorist permit to go on it. The permit is free but it takes a while for them to produce it.

    I searched it and I'm thinking it's not. I can't think of any fish that would use it. Shad might but I don't think they're up that far. I'd expect it to be a primary spillway. I believe that the water is initially let out of the reservoir at the bottom of it as they say that the cold water that comes out of it creates great trout fishing all summer long.

    Here's a video where they're doing it as maintenance so it doesn't build up as bad the other damn I don't think the first one had a bottom drain to get rid of it
