Amazing fishing opportunities abound in the Northern Susquehanna River. Known primarily for its bass fishing, this river is also home to catfish, carp, walleye, rock bass, northern pike, muskie, pickerel, sauger. The smallmouth bass here respond well to live bait that is drifted along in the water. Look for bass in the river’s pools, especially in the head and tail portions. The bass also hit on colored lures that look like minnows or crayfish. If you want to catch a walleye, plan your trip from May through June or from late September until the river freezes. The best places to find them are in the deeper holes. Use jigs tipped with minnows or worms to lure them out of their hiding spots. The muskellunge respond best to lures or large baits, while the catfish prefer live or dead baits.
