Channel and flathead catfishing was good throughout the Susquehanna River this past week. The river is low and smallmouth bass fishing has been good in most areas. Rubber twisters, flukes, Old Trail salted tubes, Senkos in green and brown colors in clearer water and shad pattern crankbaits in the cloudier water. There is topwater action early and late in the day. Tiny Torpedo,Gaines Crippled Killer’s, and Whopper Plopper lures are working well. Some nice walleye are being taken at the popular locations on Cordell Wally Divers, Rapala hot steel color lures and Rebel crayfish lures in various colors. Walleye fishing has been good in most areas after dark. Several muskies in the 35 to 40 inch range have been caught at some of the popular areas. On Penns Creek smallies are being caught on large live nightcrawlers, Tiny Torpedo lures, C.P. Swing spinners, and Rebel jointed minnows. At Faylor Lake there are reports of large bass being caught in the weed beds using large live nightcrawlers. Most streams and lakes are in good condition and producing some nice fish.
Photo Details:Ed Clark caught this 35” flathead just south of the PP&L dam. It weighed in at 16-1/2 lbs and he caught it on night crawlers. Great catch Ed!
