The Susquehanna River is fairly low and in good condition. Recent thunderstorms colored the water at times. Warmer water has slowed the fishing for awhile, but the rain showers and cooler nights helped in some good late evening fishing. Walleye fishing is picking up with anglers reporting some good hook-ups at several of the popular locations. Action at the PP&L dams has been good for several weeks. Some of the top colors have been yellow, smoke and motor oil. Both 3.5” rubber twist grubs and 5.5” twist minnows are producing well. Popular colored Reef Runners, Rapala hot steel and clown are working well in the late evening and early morning hours. Topwater action has been good on the Susquehanna River, local lakes and ponds. Gaines Crippled Killer’s, Heddon Torpedos, River2Sea 130 Whopper Plopper and Rebel Pop-R’s are some of the top choices, channel cats and flatheads are being caught at some of the popular locations on bloodbath, catfish bites and live 4” sunfish. Muskie action has been best in the early morning and late evening using the most common muskie baits such as Arbogast 4.5” Jitterbug, Medussa Regular Sucker and Daiwa SP Minnow.
Garrett Hollenbach caught this catfish on Susquehanna River on a minnow. This catfish weighed in at 8lbs and measured 26in. Another great catch by one of your customers!
