This is Tackle Talk for the Week of May 8th

Anglers on the Susquehanna River have been picking up some large catfish on prepared catfish bait. There also have been some large carp caught below the PP&L dam on the Shamokin Dam side and a few large catfish and carp have been taken at the Hoover’s Island area south of Selinsgrove. Area trout streams are in good shape and well stocked. Anglers were reporting some nice trout being caught this past week from the Mahantango Creek at Malta as well as Little Shamokin and Schwaben Creek. The baits of choice at the above creeks have been red mealworms, waxworms, and small Mepps spinners. Trout fishing has also been good on Swift Run and Upper Middlecreek, with butterworms and redworms working well.  Some excellent fishing has also been good on Penns Creek and White Deer Creek with large live nightcrawlers, rosy reds, red mealworms, and butterworms were the baits of choice. Fly fishermen have also been reporting good results on the above streams with current fly selections. The bags at the Adam Bower Dam are being tested and if all goes well they will be fully inflated by May 30th.
