Tackle Talk for the week of July 21

Old Trail Tackle & Sports Tackle Talk

The Susquehanna River conditions are very good and the water is at a nice level and fishable at most locations. Fishing below the Adam Bower Dam has been very good with all species of fish being caught including some large walleye. Rubber twisters in chartreuse, white, and green and 3-1/2 inch Old Trail salted tubes in standard colors are working well. Rebel , Storm, and Rapala 3-1/2 inch lures in various styles and colors are also a good choice. All trout streams are well stocked and in good shape. Rapid Run, White Deer Creek, Mahantango Creek, Big Pine, and Upper Penns Creek are producing well. Butterworms , gold mealworms, waxworms, and small Mepps spinners in various colors are the best choices for fishing those streams. Some nice muskies have been caught in the McKees Hall Falls area of the river using Bomber long A’s in rainbow color, double cowgirls, and Savage Pike lure. Channel and flathead catfish seem to be hitting better in the Hoover’s Island area along the east bank of the Susquehanna River. Large live nightcrawlers, chicken livers, and Sudden Impact fiber bait fished on a 1/0 or larger Team Catfish single or treble hook with fiber whiskers.
