The Susquehanna River is still above normal, but most anglers have been successful catching all species of fish. Fisherman have been doing well and having fun below the Adam Bower Dam. Both sides of the Susquehanna River have been good for fishing, but the better action has been on the Shamokin Dam side. Shady Nook, the Isle of Que and McKee’s Half Falls have also been producing well. The baits of choice have been large shiners, nightcrawler, Rebel crayfish lures and Old Trail 3 1/2” salted tubes in various colors. Fishing has been best in the deeper water and along the shore lines. Some large catfish and carp have been caught at the popular locations. On White Deer Creek anglers are reporting good trout fishing. Waxworms, gold mealworms and redworms are the baits of choice in this area. Penns Creek at Glen Iron and the Coburn area are producing some nice trout on current fly hatches, while small Mepps and Blue Fox silver dressed spinners are also a popular choice. Anglers are also reporting some good trout fishing on Swift Run, Middle Creek, Spring Creek and Mahantango Creek. Butterworms, red worms and waxworks are the baits of choice on these streams. All trout streams are well stocked and in good condition at this time of year.
Garrett Hollenbach caught this 22 inch rainbow trout on Penns Creek, with a blue dyed minnow, water was high but didn't stop the fish from biting! Great catch Garrett!
