Good news to be had from the Susquehanna Flats. We have been catching fish for almost 2 weeks now with some exceptional fishing the last 5 days. Water conditions are the best I have seen in recent years. Though the temps have taken a bit to warm up, we have great visibility of up to 3+ feet. Water clarity like that is unusual on the flats and makes for great fly and light tackle fishing.
We have been targeting fish with a variety of techniques. We have caught best on flies and on swimbaits. Fish are present on a variety of areas around the flats. Most of our best fishing has been shallow, from 4 to 7 feet of water. Best flies so far have been olive and white half and halfs with gold flash in a 3/0. No topwater bite to speak of yet, but it is not far off. I will be out every day that fit and will keep you posted. Hope to see you out there. Jeff
