Tackle Talk for the week of June 9

Old Trail Tackle & Sports Tackle Talk

Water levels in most streams and the Susquehanna River have been dropping, making good fishing at most locations. Most tributaries are clear, with water temperatures around 70 degrees. Walleye action is sporadic in the river, catching smaller ones during the day. Some nice walleye are emerging after dark on both sides of the PP&L dams and the Adam Bower Dam. Large smoke, chartreuse twist minnows and Rapala lures in vampire, hot steel and clown colors are working well. At McKees Half Falls, there are some walleye being caught. Large live shiners, Slug-Go's, Salty Spiders and Bomber lures are a good choice for walleye. Reef Runner lures and Old Trail salted tubes soaked in walleye attractant are also bringing in some nice fish. Several nice channel and flathead catfish have been caught at some of the popular locations. Muskie action has been fair. Most are being caught on Rapala Glidin' Rap, Challenger Mag Minnow and Savage Gear 3-D trout. All trout streams have good flow. Shamokin Creek has given up some good catches of trout on waxworms and butterworms. Flies that match the current hatches are working well on Penns Creek, White Deer Creek and Lycoming Creek.

Photo Details: Scott Mowery caught this huge muskie fishing the Susquehanna. His bait of choice was a tube. Congratulations on a great catch Scott!
