Tackle Talk for the week of June 17

Old Trail Tackle & Sports Tackle Talk

The Susquehanna River water levels are in good shape and have not been affected by the recent heavy rain.  On the river, fishing for muskie and walleye has been picking up at most locations.  The lures of choice for muskie have been Heddon Super Spook, Suicks and Blue Fox Musky Buck spinners.  Walleye are being taken on large live shiners.  Slug-Go's, Cabin Creek Salty Spiders and Rapala Husky Jerk lures fished slowly and close to the bottom.  The better walleye fishing has been on the Shamokin Dam side of the Adam Bower Dam.  Late evening and early morning hours are the best time for the big ones.  Mountain streams for early June for the most part are in good shape, brown trout in particular are striking hard on most streams.  Penns Creek at Coburn and Glen Iron areas are giving up some nice trout on the current fly hatches.  Also, small silver dressed spinners and gold 1/8 oz Little Cleo spoons are a popular choice.  Walker Lake, Faylor Lake and Little Buffalo Lake have all been producing well with all species of fish being taken.  Butterworms, waxworms and redworms appear to be the live baits of choice.
