Tackle Talk for the week of March 3

Old Trail Tackle & Sports Tackle Talk

The Susquehanna River has been high from recent rain and snow melt, and only a handful of hardcore anglers have been fishing stream and river hot spots. Walleye action has been fair but should pick up as the river settles and clears up. Some nice walleye 20 inches or larger have been caught. The most successful bait colors have been yellow, chartruese, motor oil and lime green. Large twist grubs and bell tail shads in 3.5 inch size are the best producers at this time of year. Anglers are also reporting some good smallmouth bass fishing. The lures of choice have been Old Trail Salted tubes in the popular colors, big jigs tipped with live nightcrawlers and slowly worked plugs close to the bottom. Locally, near shore eddies are the better places for cold water action when the water is high. Penns Creek is giving up some nice brown trout . Minnows fished slowly in the deeper holes has been productive there. Most ice fishing has slowed down due to recent warm weather and rain. As water levels drop and clarity increases the muskie action should pick up. Hoover's Island and Stiely's Campground areas are good for fishing muskies. Channel and flathead catfishing has been good at most of the popular locations.
