Anglers are reporting good fishing in area streams and on the Susquehanna River with good weather bringing large number of fisherman to the streams. With good flow at the fully inflated Adam Bower Dam, anglers are reporting good fishing on both sides all the way downstream to Hoover's Island. Fishing has also been good from boats. Smallmouth bass are being picked up on medium live shiners, nightcrawlers, Gaines Crippled Killer's, Old Trail Salted tubes in various color. Walleye fishing has been good on both sides of the Bower Dam south to McKees Half Falls. Some of the better baits for wallies have been Rapala clowns, silver shiner and perch lures. Muskie action has been good with reports of some nice catches in the Shady Nook and Hoover's Island areas. Most are being taken on large bucktail jigs and Castaic softbait sunfish lures. Channel and flathead catfishing is in full swing on the Susquehanna with anglers reporting live shiners and prepared Magic Bait fished on a spring treble working best. Trout fishing has been good. There are fewer anglers pursing them now, but good action has been reported on Loyalsock, Penns Creek and White Deer Creek. Waxworms and small spinners in various colors are producing some good catches.
Dan Raup once again getting the huge muskies on the Susquehanna River. This one measured in at about 43" long. Great catch Dan! Congratulations!
