Susquehanna River Fishing Smallmouth Bass

The Susquehanna River is Fishing very well the last week. Smallmouth Bass are being caught on a variety of different baits including Spinnerbaits, Bomber and Bandit Crankbaits, Power Team Craw D'oeurves, and Various tubes. We have also caught a few on jerkbaits but not many and am anxiously awaiting  a good topwater bite but it just hasn't happened yet.

The water is clearing and is currently in the 5' range on the Harrisburg Guage.

There is also loads of Small Walleye being caught on Small Jigs and Crankbaits, but most of them have been very small to just barely legal sized.

We have caught some rally big fish this week with the biggest being 21 1/2" and a few others over 20". These fish are fighting like crazy and even the 15" fish are a handfull.

We are out again all week so I will keep you posted as to what transpires as we go.

Be safe and I hope to see you all soon,

  1. Good report, Dave. This past week has proven quite successful. The river was at a near perfect level for boating anglers... levels were high enough to get around most places and not to high that we got to use a variety of lures... I loved it.

    The incoming rains will be causing a rise this week. But I suspect that after 8 days of perfect weather, we were due for a good soaking... By the way, I haven't cut my grass in two days! :)
