Tackle Talk for the week of May 5

Old Trail Tackle & Sports Tackle Talk

The Susquehanna River is still higher than normal, but most fisherman are doing well on Old Trail salted tubes in motor oil smoke and green pumpkin colors for some good hook-ups. There have been all species of fish being caught on both sides of the Adam Bower Dam, with some of the better fishing coming after dark on the Shamokin Dam side. Large live shiners and smoke grub-shaped twisters have been a good choice, along with hot steel Rapalas after dark. Channel and flathead catfishing below the Adam Bower Dam south to Shady Nook have been good. Anglers are reporting good trout fishing on Spruce Run and Buffalo Creek. Small silver, copper spinners, and lures are working well. Middle Creek and Swift Run are in good condition and there have been reports of quite a few nice trout being landed. Large nightcrawlers, waxworms, butterworms and small No. 0 spinners from Mepp's and Panther Martin are doing well at most locations. Penns Creek in the Glen Iron and Coburn areas are producing some large trout on the current fly hatches. Small Blue Fox and Mepp's dressed spinners are also as popular choice. The Susquehanna River and most local streams and in good shape and should stay that way for the foreseeable future.
