The fall bite for smallies is starting to get primed in the Susquehanna River. The water levels in the river are low, but the clarity of the water is as good as it gets. Water temperatures from Harrisburg south are holding around 66 deg. F. As soon as we get back to some normal fall temperatures, the river temp should drop a few degrees and really push the small jaws into a feeding frenzy. When the cooler nights where upon us last week, some of the smallies where starting to school up, so we're close.

Water in the north branch of the Susquehanna is already in the low to mid 60's and the fishing is hot.

I've had good luck in the Harrisburg area on Lucky Craft Pointer 100 jerk baits and spinners baits. Some success on sassy shads and plastic grubs.

Hope to see you out there.

The susky was on fire tonight around Lancaster. 5" hard stickbait, jerk pause. Caught 8 between 1-3# in a couple hrs, missed at least as many. Tried alot of other things but always came back to the stickbait. Caught a couple on top but not like a few weeks ago.
