The Susquehanna River is looking nice but getting close to September lows with several days of slow rain needed to return things to normal. Several anglers have hit it just right and caught some nice smallies at some of the popular spots. There are periods when the fish just shut down. Eel’s have been caught at various locations on the river this week. Some walleye are being caught at the popular locations. Reef Runners, Cordell Wally Divers, and Double hook worm rigs with spinners seem to be the lures of choice. Anglers are reporting early September topwater action mostly in the early morning on buzz baits, topwater Heddon Rebels, and River 2 sea lures, Old Trail salted 3-1/2 inch tubes in black and darker colors are working well after dark. Near the White bridge at the Norry Point and other locations catfish are being caught on blood baits, chicken livers, and sudden impact baits. Even though the streams are low some trout anglers are still doing well. There are still a lot of trout left in most streams. The baits of choice have been butterworms, redworms, and current fly hatches.
