The water levels on the Susquehanna River is a bit higher than normal this week but anglers are reporting some good fishing. The water temperature is in the mid 50's and a little off color but is fishable from the shore. Some of the better fishing has been from Shady Nook south to Hoover's Island. Smallmouth bass fishing has been picking up this past week and should continue as water temperatures rise. Various tubes and twisters in the standard colors are working well for bass at this time. Muskie activity has been picking up at the popular areas with 6-inch rubber shad tails and Bomber long A's being the lures of choice. Some large catfish are being caught at some of the popular locations and the baits of choice has been large live shiners, live nightcrawlers, and prepared catfish baits. Trout stockings are well under way. Most streams are in very good condition and ready for opening day.
