About 1230 after relacing the boots, keep hearing these loud noises. Sounds like jets flying overhead real low. Keep hearing it in intervals for about 30 secs. Where are the jets? WW3? Chucky Shumer shuts down the gumment again? Look up no jets.

Hear this splashing sound to my right thinking "Oh no! Water landing!", look over and JB is about 1/4 lower in the water. Then in slow motion its proceeds to collapse the rest of the way. Realized the loud jet sounds was the sound of the frame.

There where two guys fishing above me about 50 yard one of them said one of the diagonal cross sections looked loosey goosey. There where also some geese near the bridge that may have been the culprits.

Went up to take a few pics just in time for my camera to die. Then the water started coming up. Fished a few minutes longer and got 2 very small bows. Think TIC did another fingerling stocking recently. Nice day on the reever.

Wow! Kind of thought you were kidding. I always wondered why they left those old bridges up. Figured it was about money.

Guess it was a matter of time. At least it happened this time of year. Could've been disastrous in the summer.

Default Before Pic

Here is a before pic and background on the bridge. I don't remember the pier at he end or the bridge. The house @CCOS view will continue to improve.

Interesting obstacle for tubers... Although that section of JB receives less traffic.
