The Susquehanna River is fairly low and in good condition. Recent thunderstorms color the water at times. Warmer water has slowed the fishing at times, but the rain showers and cooler nights helped in some good late evening fishing. Walleye fishing is picking up, with anglers reporting some good hook-ups at several of the popular locations. Action at the PP&L dams has been good for several weeks. Some of the top colors have been motor oil, smoke and green pumpkin. Both 3.5" rubber twister grubs and minnows are producing some nice fish. Popular colored Reef Runners, Rapala clown and hot steel colors are working well in the late evening and early morning hours. Top water action is picking up on the Susquehanna River and local ponds and lakes. Gaines Crippled Killer's, River 2 Sea Whopper Ploppers, Heddon Torpedos and Cordell Crazy Shad are some of the top choices. Channel catfish are being caught on chicken livers and Sudden Impact dip bait. Muskie action has been best in the early morning and late evening using the most common muskie lures. Most fly fishing anglers are still having success with trout on most local streams. Live waxworms, redworms and flies are working well.
