Quick Update On the Susquehanna Flats
I know everyone is itching to get out fishing on the flats, a few days more I say. There are reports of fish having been caught, both on bait and lures, but water clarity is still poor. This morning we had 5- 6 inches of visibility and 43-44 degree water temps at the marina. They have still been running 6-8 gates at the Conowingo Dam in the mornings making it tough for the water to clear, even though overall flows are receding. Received a report that the herring have arrived in some of the tributary creeks last evening, a sure sign that stripers aren’t far behind. I am hoping that we will be fishing and catching by the weekend. I’ll keep you posted daily. For those of you not familiar with the fishing in the area, fishing can turn on quick.
