Tackle Talk for the week of July 28

Old Trail Tackle & Sports Tackle Talk

 The Susquehanna River is high and off color from recent storms. Conditions are good for channel and flathead catfishing. Large live nightcrawlers and Sudden Impact usual work well in these conditons.  Creek mouths and shoreline eddies are good spots for catfish. The better catfish hook-ups are coming late evening and nights. Most tributaries are clear with water temperatures around 80 degrees. Anglers are reporting trout being caught at Raymond B. Winter Lake. The baits of choice have been waxworms and Berkley Power bait in various colors. Some nice smallmouth bass are being taken on Penns Creek on medium live shiners, Mepps combo killers and Challenger lures. Old Trail salted tubes are also working well in black/red flake, Amber pepper/gold flake, and smoke/purple flake. On the Shamokin Dam side, smallmouth bass are being caught on medium shiners, large live nightcrawlers, butterworms, and glass Rapala #4 shad raps. Some walleye are being taken from the Adam Bower Dam south to Isle of Que, mostly after sundown.The lures of choice have been Cordell wally divers, bright colored bucktails, and Old Trail salted tubes in smoke/chartreuse sparkle, and green pumpkin illusion which have been accounting for some nice catches. As the weed beds reemerge there is good action  on spinnerbaits.
