Susquehanna River Fishing Forum

1st Smallie of 2018

The Susquehanna River level has come up to a great level for wading/walking the shoreline.
Color is stained but fishable. Not too much debris.  Air temp was very comfortably in the 60's today.

The problem is water temperature. Up and down....Up and down. Today at Danville the temp showed between 34-35F this AM.

Carp galore. All caught in the tail. But among them was one hungry smallmouth with icicles on his chin...wearing long johns.

This 2.5 pounder hit my Cabin Creek tube just as I raised it off the bottom on a slow drift.



I could only find one taker today but it's a start. If the water temp gets up closer to 40F and the levels stay up I might get some decent mid-winter smallmouthing.  ;) :D

Another try

I've been burning up a lot of .22 ammo this winter...Now if I could ski maybe I could enter the Olympic Biathalon.  8) :o ;D ....for seniors that is.

I did take a day this week to check my woman again. Water temps rose to 35F and I thought I might soon find a smallmouth.

Well...they are still vacationing in the Bahamas but I did land 3 monstrous carp. Two of them were foul hooked in the tail but there is always one that either gets irritated or is hungry and tries to eat my offering. A 30 pound fish is easier to land hooked in the mouth than in the tail or dorsal fin.





The old girl (Susky-Q) is gonna rise a little and warm temps are forecast for next week. When that water gets up to 37-38F I'm expecting some action.
