  1. Default Susquehanna River wading

    Hello all,

    I was hoping some one could point me to some spots on the Susquehanna River or its tributaries in PA that one could do some wet wading for smallies. Of course I would have to have a public access spot.

    I fish the Potomac River a lot but wanted to try some new fishing spots.

    Thanks for the help.

    Robert.

    Try Rt 402 in Tunkanock. Great access on both sides of the bridge.clear trails down river as well as up. Tons of smallies, big rock bass and if your lucky musky. Good opportunities in the spring and early summer for monster carp .
    If your willing to take a hike down river Bowmans Creek enters the river . About a mile from road to where it dumps in but great spot ! Walleye , Smallies and Big browns at the mouth.

    Depends on how far you're willing to travel. It's been awhile, but I've fished in the section from Duncannon & above a few times, and the Juniata River is right there too. There used to be access along US Rt 11/15, and last time I was up that way there was roadside parking.
    Remember, no one likes to be behind the big truck, but that's better than being under it!

    There is still an access area where the Conodoguinet Creek enters the Susquehanna. It is on route 11 & 15 in West Fairview. You can walk up the creek or fish in the river.

    Hey guys,

    Sorry for not checking the forum in soooooo long guys... I have been out to lunch with the winter weather. Finally hoping to get back out there with summer quickly approaching. I was hoping to find an area of the river that I could rent a vacation rental on and easily get out and do some fishing. Especially for smallies.

    Thank you for the replies!

    Try up by the town of Susquehanna by the New York State border . Quite a few reasonable rentals right on the river . And good Smallie fishing.Chamber of commerce should be able to stear you where to rent.

    Years ago Front St (Harrisburg) at Route 39 (Linglestown Rd) was a good place to go. You can walk out at least half way and fish lay up against the rock shelf that can be seen from Front St. I don't know what its like now but there used to be a lot of bass in there. You will want heavily weighted flied to get the down in the fast current. Be careful.
