Tackle Talk for the week of June 19th

The Susquehanna River is in good condition.  Smallmouth bass are hitting very well at most locations.  Around the dams, smoke, smoke/silver glitter and pearl 3.5 inch twist minnows are catching some large bass and an occasional striper bass.  In other areas, Old Trail Tackle & Sports Premium Salted Tubes in various shades of dark green are working well. At Walker Lake some nice smallies are being caught on Rapala Floating Minnow #9 in Hot Steel and Purpledescent and walleye lures.  Some nice crappies have also been caught in recent weeks.  The baits of choice have been small twisters with the best colors chartreuse and orange/black tail.  Small rubber tubes in various colors are also a good choice.  Anglers are also reporting some good fishing at Lake Chillisquaque at the Montour Preserve and Faylor Lake. There have been some nice channel and flathead catfish caught on large live shiners and nightcrawlers at the most popular Susquehanna River locations.  Topwater lures like Heddon Torpedoes and Gaines Crippled Killers have been very effective this past week.  Walleye anglers have been concentrating on the area below the PP&L dams on both sides of the Susquehanna River.  Most action is coming in late evening hours.  Smithwick Floating Rattlin Rogues, Erie Dearies and Rapala Shad Raps are also some good choices for some great hook-ups.
