There are maps available online.Yes I heard they call that part of the water the driftwood branch of sinnemahoning. I have always call it the West branch of susqy. I guy had told me it does not turn into the river until it gets down around renovo.
I mainly fish the Susqy from Liverpool down to Duncannon and yes the River is rebounding just fine.My oldest son and I fished the main river above Harrisburg for the first time last week. He picked up his personal best SM at 19"+, I put a 18" in the boat and we each had a few between 12"-15". He was using a nose hooked 4" Case SSS minnow and I was fishing a nose hooked Keitech 4" swing shad. There was only one other boat on the river that I could see. There were a few spots that I grounded the boat and I was amazed at the amount of crayfish I seen while walking in the shallow water.
The river is incredible and I wish I could get there more often. I totally agree that the PFBC should keep a no kill in effect. Honestly I did not know such rule was in effect because we release everything anyway.
Good luck, Tony
Yes they are back in numbers and size.I haven’t been there in years. My jonboat and jet outboard are meant for that river. We used to fish a ton right above the Dauphin Narrows.
So the fish are back?
I better service that boat and get it ready... I miss smallie fishing!
Have they ever cleaned the bathrooms?Yes Riverfront Campground is still there.
Probably worse:jestera: I've never camped there, would pull out there at the end of many a floatHave they ever cleaned the bathrooms?
A buddy and I fished the river one weekend and camped there, and the bathrooms were BAD.
That was about 15 - 20 years ago. Hopefully someone got around to cleaning them since then.
I keep every bass that is legal on the Lehigh River! I fillet them out, put a little cornmeal on them..and fry them up! Now you got my mouth watering!Fished half day Friday and most of the day Saturday until forced off the water with heavy storms.
Caught over well 50 Smallies, biggest was an 18" pig along with several 15 and 16" football fat bass.
The Susqy is coming back, just hope the PF & BC keep the no harvest going.
No need to Eat those Beautiful Smallmouths.
CPR- catch. photo and release.
