The smallie bite is on fire today.  Looks like the spawn is on as there are lots of bed fishers.  I caught 5 on spinners and grub, another guy caught at least 2 very large fish and a bass boat had to have caught 2 dozen.  While there 3 river boats came flying up through, they were all headed to the spawn area.

A buddy and I ran 7 miles up the Tuscarora Creek Saturday in Juniata County. This is a small trib about the size of the Shermans Creek maybe a little smaller. All of our fish were spawned out except for 3 fat small females. We only caught 25 or so with only 4 - 18" or better fish. Most fish were normal small creek fish nothing to write home about. Nice scenery and fun 4 wheeling with the jet.

The fish I caught and saw where good size for the creek, nothing massive by river standards..  Sounds like you had a fun day.

Yeah it was fun. I've run up there before but never that far. There is an old causeway you can't get above. The fish were very temperamental. Would not hit SBT or buzzbaits. The strike zone was very small. Had to throw swimbaits to get them to eat. (I refuse to throw tubes and jigs this time of year)
I wish I knew how to post pics - I havs 2 pics of spawned out beauties. One was caught by a flyfisherman I take out every year. Almost feel bad for them as beat up as they look. Could someone send me an email and post them for me?

go to imgur.com and setup an account for free,  then you can upload to their site.  Once that is done click on your library, choose the pick and direct copy link.   

Come back here and use the photo button under the B paste the link in the middle of the img's.

Does anyone else find when the water is low and clear the fish are all gone?   Also the other night I saw a really odd fish.  I think it might have been a darter.  I normally see these small bottom fish that are flat and wide and camo flage looking.  I think they are darters.  Well it looked just like those but was 15" or so long.  Does anyone know if they can get that big?

Never seen a darter that long...
Might I suggest you may have seen a hog nosed sucker fish. I've caught them that large...and they do have a camo like pattern on their body.

Bill that could be it.  I only saw it from the top, it had that flat wide bottom look to it, with really broad flat fins.  Clearly meant for sitting on the bottom.  I wish I had gotten a better look at it but it swam into a deep hole and I lost sight of it. 

Oh and welcome back to the forum.  Thought we lost you. :)

The sun is brutal!! But this is my favorite time at Muddy Creek. I usually start in the evenings on a shady bank at no earlier than 05:30PM. I quess my fishing fever outweighs the heat. Overcast skies result in "thank you God" prayers.

Makes the days at the pool with the grandchildren more enjoyable! At 10AM app states 82 degrees, backporch 88 degrees. Pool day!

Is that because you don't like the hot weather, or the hot weather chases the fish from the areas you wade?

A little of both. I have a boat and I use to spend 4-6 hours a day on the river in summer.

But the smallmouth just aren't as plentiful in the Selinsgrove area (summer or winter) and since I passed the age of 70 (now 73) I just do not have the stamina and I wilt quickly in temperatures above 80 F.

Winter is my time of the year.  ;)  :)
