Fishing on the Susquehanna is getting better. Most of our Smallmouth are coming on Power Team Lures Craw D’oeurve in Green pumpkin, 2 1/2″ mizmo tubes and Lucky Craft pointers in Ghost minnow. The majority of fish are near current or just in the seams. It will continue to get better as the water warms. SusquehannaRiverFishing.com
The river has been coming the past couple of days since a couple days of flood levels. For a short time we saw levels of 21′ at Harrisburg and some overflowed banks, but it didn’t last long and it now looks like we are on our way to some great fishing days ahead. At last check the levels are at around 9 or 9.5 feet and although it is pretty muddy we are hearing of people catching some nice smallmouth and some big ones too. So we find that the river is very fishable, but we caution you that it is still a task only for very experienced boaters. It looks like we will be at 7.5 feet by Sunday and then it is game
I love the river because each day brings something new to the mix. Kevin and I were out on the Susquehanna River in the fall of 2010 and he decided to show his skill at slow rolling spinnerbaits. In fact it was so slow that a clam latched on to one. This clam completely ate the spinnerbait and Kevin didn’t even feel the bite (haha)…. wow, that was a first for us. It took a little to pry the clam open enough to get out the bait and not harm the clam. A great catch and release move I must say.
