The Susquehanna River is somewhat high but in good shape and with mild weather upon us this coming week should be the start of some good fishing. Some nice smallmouth bass have been caught in the Shady Nook and Isle of Que areas mostly on live shiners and 3.5 inch Old Trail Salted Tubes in smoke, motor oil and black/red flake colors. The lower portion of Penns Creek has been producing some nice bass. Most are being taken on medium live shiners in various colors of hair jigs fished slowly and close to the bottom. Quite a few boats have been seen at the common spots on the Susquehanna River with some anglers reporting some good hook-up. Some large catfish have been caught this past week and quite a few large carp have been foul hooked. Most area lakes including Walker Lake, Faylor Lake and Little Buffalo Lake are in good shape and producing well. Muskie action has been good at most of the popular locations. Mepp’s Muskie Killers and Big-Fin spinner baits in various colors are working well. The early trout season opens April 1st in the 18 Southeastern counties with the regular opening day for trout statewide April 15th.
