O.K. , we’re still sitting on the bench waiting for our chance to fish the Susquehanna Flats. The stripes are there, and being caught regularly as reported yesterday from numerous fisherman fishing cut bait. Yes, you can actually fish bait there during the season as long as you use a circle hook and release the fish of course. Cut or live herring are the chunk of choice , and the guys fishing it do quite well. Fly Fishing, as we know is another act all together, and the fish need to see the fly to eat the fly. Water clarity therefore becomes the issue, and as of this morning we are looking at about 1 foot of visibility . This makes targeting the fish on a fly ,or lure for that matter, real tough.
The good news is that the river is clearing daily, and we have great water temps, about 50 degrees in most areas. We are literally a day away from catching fish. So, I am trying again this afternoon and keep you all posted.
