The Susquehanna River is low and wadeable in most places, but anglers are reporting some good hook-ups. There were a few nice walleye caught below the Adam Bower Dam. Smallmouth bass have been picky but the ones caught have been large. Medium live shiners, Rapala Vampire and X Calibur Zell Pop lures are working well. Topwater action for smallies is picking up at various locations. Fishing around grass patches is usually productive. Throwing Bandit Mad Cow or Heddon Moss Boss lures along the edges of weed beds usually gets some action this time of year. Some stripers are being caught at several locations by anglers fishing for smallmouth bass. Channel and flathead fishing has been good some nights and bad some other nights. The better catfish hook-ups are coming on hot nights on large live shiners and prepared catfish baits. There are still quite a few trout in most area streams. Waxworms, gold mealworms, and trout magnets in various colors are working well. The on and off rain this week seemed to spark the fishing to some degree with a lot more anglers showing up on local waterways.
