     I have not yet experienced fall fishing in the Susquehanna, but I have heard many things that I will gladly share. We are currently experiencing a moderate, to warmer fall season this year. The water is at an average temperature of 52 degrees, and due to the current rain, the river is rising, and becoming more murky. Musky and Walleye are attempting to make their way up the river, so it will be a lot simpler to hammer them at this time. If you are planning on landing a bass this fall, this is the review for you. I have heard that many anglers have been hammering bass on spinnerbaits, and jigs. Also, topwater lures such as a topwater Rapala, or even a jitterbug will give you moderate to great success. Another lure to add to your tackle this fall, is the crank bait. A lipless, 3-4' depth, or even a deep diver will put the big ones in the boat this fall. If you feel any need to ask any questions about fall river fishing, feel free to contact me on instagram @robronherg3, or on snapchat at robronherg3. Good Luck, and Happy Angling!

Spinner baits were working to catch Smallmouth Bass early this week; however, with the recent and predicted rain fall amounts anglers should wait until water levels stabilize to venture back out on the water.

NOTE: During high water events, woody debris can cause great hazard for anglers wading.  Keep checking upstream if you are fishing to make sure you don’t get knocked into the water by a passing log.

The lower water level in the North Branch of the Susquehanna River has made boating more dangerous recently.  As the water continues to drop, be very alert for newly exposed hazards.

Catfish anglers are having good success throughout the river when targeting riffles
