Tackle Talk for the week of October 1

Old Trail Tackle & Sports Tackle Talk

The Susquehanna River has been changing back and forth from rising to falling. River level forecasts call for high water this weekend.  The warming trend should make for good fishing after the river settles down again.  Most of the better fishing has been from the PP&L Dam, Shamokin Dam side south to Hoover's Island.  Rubber twist grubs and Old Trail salted tubes 3.5" size in smoke, pumpkin pepper, junebug and chartreuse have been the preferred colors.  Live medium shiners are also working well, channel and flathead catfishing has been good along the shoreline and eddies, the better baits have been prepared cubed catfish bait and Sudden Impact fished on Furry Thang hooks. There have also been reports of muskie being taken at several of the popular locations using Mepp's Musky Killers and 7-inch Smity Baits.  Most trout streams are up and flowing at a good rate.  Most anglers are using redworms and fathead minnows on streams with high water levels.  Waxworms and nightcrawlers are a top choice on streams where the water clears more quickly. Noisy spinners like Mepps and Blue Fox work well under the conditions.  All local lakes are in good condition and some nice fish being taken on various live baits.  Rapala and Storm lures are also working well for trout.
