Despite the high water and plenty of competition, most anglers have been catching some nice trout. Mahantango Creek above Malta as well as Little Shamokin Creek, Schwaben Creek and White Deer Creek have been producing well. The baits of choice have been live waxworms, redworms and 1/16 oz. Rooster tails spinners in the popular colors. The upper parts of Middle Creek and Swift Run have been giving up some nice trout. Butterworms and gold mealworms have been some of the better live baits on smaller streams. Fishing on Penns Creek, Rapid Run and Little Pine Creek has also been excellent with large nightcrawlers, butterworms and redworms the baits of choice. The Susquehanna River has been changing back and forth from rising to falling. River forecasts call for high water this weekend. Most of the better fishing this week will be in the backwater areas and along shorelines. Some large catfish and carp have been caught around the Hoover's Island area south of Selinsgrove. Nice fish are also being caught at the Adam Bower Dam and the PP&L Dams on the Shamokin Dam side. Walleye fishing has been good at most of the popular areas. The warming trend should make for good fishing after the river settles down again.
