Tackle Talk for the week of August 19

Old Trail Tackle & Sports Tackle Talk

With the Susquehanna River conditions way above normal and off color this past week from recent rain storms, anglers who brave these conditions are having success catching all species including several nice walleye at several of the popular locations.  Fishing has been best along the shorelines and the edge of fast moving water.  Old Trail 3 1/2" Salted Tubes, Rebel, Storm lures and Case Magic Stiks are producing some nice fish.  Anglers are also reporting some great hook-ups further south at the areas between McKees Half Falls and Liverpool.  Better fishing should gradually work its way upstream as the weather improves and we get closer to fall.  Recent showers have muddied up some of the local feeder streams, producing some good channel and flathead cat fishing where these streams enter the river.  The bait of choice for cats has been large live nightcrawlers, and Magic bait chicken livers fished close to shore and near the bottom.  Fisherman are reporting all local lakes have good water flow and are producing large fish.  At Raymond Winter Lake and other local lakes trout have been caught on waxworms, and redworms as well as small Mepp's spinners and Berkley Powerbait in various colors.
