With dropping temperatures over the course of this month, we may start seeing ice conditions starting to form.  If you plan on going on an ice fishing trip elsewhere, please review the safety tips on our website as well as local conditions and tips for your destination.

As a continued reminder, the mandatory cold weather PFD wear took effect on November 1st, 2020, and will continue until April 30th of this year.  Boaters must wear a life jacket on boats less than 16 feet in length and on all paddle craft to include canoes, kayaks, and paddleboards. Always plan ahead and make sure your mandatory safety gear is on board and in serviceable condition.  Check that your United States Coast Guard approved PFD is in good, serviceable condition as well.  Visit our site at for more details.

Anglers are catching Walleye in the Susquehanna River at the out flow of York Haven Power Plant. Live bait, such as creek chubs, seem to be the most attractive bait. As a reminder for ice anglers, don't forget to check the weather and the thickness of the ice before going out to fish.
