The Susquehanna River and all area streams are in good shape and fishable. Channel cats and flatheads are hitting very well at the Norry point mostly on prepared catfish baits and large live shiners. Anglers are reporting good fishing at the Adam Bower Dam and the PP&L Dam on the Shamokin Dam side. Live medium shiners, motor oil and lime green/black flake rubber 5-inch twist minnows are working well. The Shady Nook area, south to McKee's Half Falls, has been producing well all week. The baits of choice have been large live shiners, Old Trail salted tubes in various colors and Johnson spoons indifferent sizes. Trout streams are also producing well according to most area anglers. White Deer Creek is in good condition. Dry flies that are working have been brown stonefly #16 and March brown #16 and #12. Raymond B. Winter Lake has been good for the past several weeks. The baits of choice have been yellow and chartreuse power baits, but butterworms, fathead minnows and dry flies fished on wooden bobbers are also working well. Muskie fishing is picking up as the water becomes warmer. Big in-line spinners and spinner baits are good for this time of year.
Dan Raup caught this huge 41" muskie which ties his personal best! He caught this beauty on a bucktail spinner on the Susquehanna River. Amazing catch Dan! Congratulations!
