The start to this year's season on the Susquehanna Flats has been a pleasant change from the last couple of years. Though we have had to contend with windy days for much of this month, water conditons have been decent due to the lack of rain and snowmelt.
We have been catching fish on the fly and light tackle since late March. Much of our fishing has been along the channel edges and deeper water. Heavy wind has made alot of the shallow water too turbid too fish. Good weather forecast for the next few days should help change this trend, and hopefully we will get some good topwater and shallow water fishing soon.
This week we have had some good fishing on the fly. We have caught a bunch of fish on hallf and half patterns along the edges of grass beds, and still along the channel edges. Topwater action is still a little slow, but we are having more bites on top each trip as the water temps warm.
