Tackle Talk for the week of November 17

Old Trail Tackle & Sports Tackle Talk


The colder weather has dropped the river water temperatures down into the 40’s. Walleye are still fairly active and seem to be hitting better during overcast days, though most of the bigger ones are caught at night.  Jerkbaits and slow moving jigs on the bottom are working well for walleye. At night floating Rebels and Rapalas  in black/silver are working. Walleye have been hitting a variety of colors on Old Trail salted tubes with smoke, chartreuse, motor oil, and green pumpkin are working well. Smallmouth bass are still hitting but the action has slowed down a bit at some of the popular areas. The baits of choice have been slow moving jigs fished on the bottom and live medium shiners and nightcrawlers .  Some of the better fishing has been below the Adam Bower Dam and the PP&L power dams. Muskie action at most of the popular spots has been picking up. The lures of choice have been Swim Whizz in various colors, Medussa Chaos, and large live shiners. Channel catfishing has been sporadic with some anglers doing very well after dark near the deepest holes. Flathead fishing has been good below the PP&L dams south to Hoover’s Island using large sunfish as bait. Local lake fishing has been good with most of the standard baits and lures working well.
