This is Tackle Talk for the Week of March 20th

Susquehanna River conditions have been off color and higher than usual but all types of fishing has been good. At the PP&L dam on the Shamokin Dam side angling has been good for smallmouth bass including some nice sized ones. Large live shiners, Old Trail salted tubes in various colors and 4-1/2 inch smoke rubber twist minnows are working best. Anglers are reporting some nice smallies and perch are being taken at the Byer's Island area south to Cherry Island. They are being caught on live large nightcrawlers, medium live shiners, and 3-1/2 inch rubber twist minnows. Standard colors seem to be working best. Temperatures will probably fluctuate over the next couple of weeks weeks greatly affecting bass activity. Anglers fishing slowly and with patience are having the best luck and catching more fish. Walleye season closed March 14th with anglers reporting some of the best action of the year at most of the popular locations. Channel catfish and flathead catfish are being caught from Shady Nook to Hoover's Island on large live nightcrawlers. With water temperatures moving into the 50's there should be an increase in fishing activity at most locations in the next several weeks.
