With the Susquehanna River conditions above normal and off color this past week from recent rain storms, anglers who can brave these conditions are having success catching all species, including several nice walleye below the Adam Bower Dam and the Shady Nook area. Fishing has been best along the shoreline and at the edge of fast moving water. Old Trail 3 1/2 inch salted tubes, Rebel and Storm lures and Case Magic Stiks are producing some nice fish. Anglers are also reporting some great hook ups further south of us at the areas between McKees Half Falls and Liverpool have been very productive. Better fishing should gradually work its way upstream as the water conditions and weather improve. Recent showers have muddied up some of the local feeder streams, producing some good channel cat fishing where these streams enter the river. The bait of choice for cats has been large live nightcrawlers and large live shiners fished close to shore. Anglers are reporting all local lakes have good water flow and are producing some large fish. At Raymond Winter Lake, trout are being caught on waxworms, butterworms, and small Mepp's spinners and Berkley Powerbait in various colors.
