Fishing in Susquehanna River

If you’ve never fished the Susquehanna River, the longest river on the East Coast, you’re missing out! This extraordinary watershed is the epicenter of some of the best freshwater action and caters to all types of anglers. If you’re coming here for the first time, there are plenty of Susquehanna River fishing guides that can help you find the best bite.
 
When Anglers mention the “Susky,” the first thing that comes to mind is its superb fishing for Smallmouth Bass. But that’s just the beginning – Trout, Catfish, Musky, Carp, and Walleye are all there for the taking. Going after trophy-sized Catfish is particularly popular on the river, as well as night fishing for them.
 
Because Susquehanna is such a vast body of water, having a local captain show you the hotspots is a game-changer. Most guides have half day and full day trips on offer, and everything you need, aside from a fishing license, is included in the price. If you’d like to target a particular species, some captains run specialized expeditions that could be to your liking.
 
Where you should cast your line will depend on what you’d like to catch. The West Branch is the mecca of Trout fishing, while fishing from Harrisburg, Falls, or Duncannon will put you on the trail of Smallmouth Bass, Catfish, Musky, and much more.
 
Ready for your next river fishing adventure? Pick your Susquehanna River fishing guide and let the escapades begin!

Rules & Regulations

The Susquehanna River runs through New York, Pennsylvania, and Maryland, which means that fishing regulations will change from state to state.
 
There’s a general rule that every angler 16 and older needs to have a valid fishing license for the state they’re fishing in. If you’re fishing for Trout in the wilderness of the West Branch, you’ll also need a Trout Stamp. When it comes to daily limits, turn to your charter captain, he’ll make sure you follow all the rules while still having fun.

Susquehanna River Fishing Seasons

January

If you’re on the water in January, knowing what to target is key. Going after Bass and Catfish is slow, but Musky are biting left and right, and this is the best time to chase them.

February

It’s still cold on the water, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have any fun. Do some jigging for giant Musky or head to Brunner’s Island for some solid Catfishing action.

March

Both the weather and water are getting warmer, which means that Smallies are more active, and if Catfish is your preferred prey, head to the middle section of the Susquehanna Valley.

April

Are you in the mood for fantastic Trout fishing? It’s finally warm enough to head out to the remote areas around the West Branch where Brook, Brown, and Rainbow Trout are abundant.

May

Smallmouth Bass are preparing for spawning, which means they’re very hungry and equally aggressive. Up north, Trout fishing on the West Branch is still excellent.

June

Bass don’t tolerate heat too well, so they’ll be moving to deeper waters. If you’d like to get a taste of Musky fishing, get your spinnerbaits out, the noise will make your setup irresistible.

July

Whether it’s Bass, Catfish, Musky, or Carp you’re going after, in July, it’s safe to say that deeper sections of the river are your best bet. If you set your sights on Smallies, having a professional by your side will help you find your catch.

August

Catfish love warm weather, so they’ll be out and about in August. Whether you’re on the lookout for Flathead or Channel Cats, with good guidance, you could stumble upon a trophy.

September

Fall is just around the corner, and you can spot fly fishermen all over the river, trying to find their next personal record Smallmouth. Catfishing is still very good, and Musky are not far behind.

October

If you’re a fly angler on the Susquehanna River in October, you’ve got a lot to look forward to. Trout fishing on the West Branch is very productive right now, as is the Smallmouth Bass bite.

November

Just as Bass and Catfish are becoming more sluggish and not that interested in food, Musky fishing is on the rise. You can still hook a hog Smallie if you know where to go.

December

If you have time to hit the water before the holiday season, Musky fishing will not disappoint. Your next trophy could be one cast away, and with a bit of skill and patience, you could find it on your line as an early Christmas present.
