The recent mild weather has made late-season bass and walleye fishing above average. The Susquehanna River is off color, with water levels several feet higher than last week from recent rain and snow melt. Anglers are reporting some nice walleye being caught at the Hoover’s Island area and various backwater locations. Old Trail Salted Tubes in the darker colors and 3 1/2 inch rubber twist grubs in smoke, chartreuse and green pumpkin are among the lures working well for walleye. Some large smallies and walleye have been caught in the Shady Nook and Isle of Que areas. Bass are being taken on large live shiners, nightcrawlers and Old Trail Salted Tubes. Walleye are being picked up on chartreuse glitter twist grubs and medium live shiners which have been consistent producers. Muskie are being caught on a variety of the most common muskie lures around Hoover’s Island, McKees Half Falls and near the PP&L Dam on the Shamokin Dam side. Ice fishing is still in full swing with most area lakes reporting at least four inches of good ice.
