With the Susquehanna River clear and low, the walleye action has been fair, mostly in the late evening. Old Trail Salted Tubes in smoke/red flake, chartreuse glitter and green pumpkin illusion are picking up some nice walleye. Smallmouth bass are being taken on medium live shiners, Heddon Tiny Torpedoes, Smithwick Devil’s Horse, and Heddon Bayou Boogie. Some of the better bass action has been from the Adam Bower Dam south to Hoover’s Island. Both sides of the river have been productive at times when fishing the deeper holes. Channel cats and flatheads are being caught mostly after dark in the popular locations. Large live shiners and sunfish fished in areas with decent current are picking up some nice cats. There were several muskies caught this week mostly in the deeper holes in some of the popular muskie areas. Jointed lures like Strike King King Shad, Smity Bait and River 2 Sea Whopper Plopper 130 have been working well. Quite a few anglers are using several types of attractants, which they claim helps to attract fish a little better than a plain lure. Anglers are reporting all trout streams low but fishable, with small No. 20 or No. 22 flies catching some nice fish.
Jeremy Newcomb from Selinsgrove caught this 4lb. Smallmouth Bass at the Isle of Que on a Heddon Zara Spook Lure. What a great catch!
