Wading out into the morning's water my body took a moment to adjust against the chill as the water came up over my shorts. The Susquehanna waters, though warm in general during mid-summer, was still chilled this early in the day. I was wet wading in this section, which is my normal mode for this stretch, mainly for my own safety. The water is shallow most of the way across, but there are slots of deep water formed around decades of bridge pilings.
