Trapping The River (susky)

Whats the rules on obtaining permission? my line comes near the river in a few spots and was thinking of hitting it up next year, whats the laws reguarding setting along the river and up feeder creeks?

There are enough animals in the woods and birds in the air for all of us...

I would have to say it all depends on who owns the property of the spot you are looking at.

I would use drowning sets and trap right from the boat. Man a guy could have a serious line along that river!

What is the Area Like?

The Susquehanna is Considered a Navigable River even know there are Dams on it...
I have a place where I trap along the river... the land is RR Property...I was informed by a RR Police Officer 1 year that If I Stayed off the land, they did not care if I was in the boat in the river setting traps!

So, I set the holes and travel ways along the shore from the boat like Mallard said to you to do...Caught plenty of rats and mink from that area....there is 1 spot that gets a little touchy to trap from the boat, I walked the shore right along the river edge and set and even set back in the little tree groves aswell and was seen in this area by the RR Police, they never said anything to me about it!

You can set from a boat and be all legal, but those feeder streams, there could be the touchy part...walking into them and being on ground under the water that is owned by someone!
