Fishing and Boating Report – July 29, 2014
Dauphin County

Susquehanna River at Middletown flows are now at typical summer levels and water clarity is high especially on the west shoreline. White Fly hatch is underway on the Lower Susquehanna River. This hatch usually runs from mid-July to early August. Hatches may occur just before and after dark. Smallmouth bass can be caught on #12 white Wulff dry flies, small white poppers and gurglers. Floating crankbaits fished slowly at the surface are good for larger fish. Soft stickbaits in green pumpkin are working well.
