December 15, 2010 Susquehanna River Fly and Spin Guide Service Fishing Report:  The River has been like a yo yo, fluctuating up and down. Conditions have not been ideal and I've chosen to stay off the water a bit due to the high winds, low air and water temps. When the weather and river conditions settle down we will be back at’em concentrating on walleye and smallmouth. The bite is slow and patience is the key. There's always the possibilty of a Musky or two to make their way to the boat this time of year as well.
Thanks again to all of you who have fished with me this during this 2010 season hope you have a great holiday season. Here are some winter client catches to hold you over. I am taking bookings for this winter & early spring 2011. Tis the season to give and what better than a gift certificate for a guided trip this Winter or Spring.

November 9, 2010 Susquehanna Fly and Spin Guide Service Fishing Report:  Despite the cooler windy conditions my clients managed to get a some fish to the boattoday. The smallies were taking a variety of moving lures, jigs, and flies. With the windy tough conditions we decided to take what the Susquehanna gave us and called it a day. You know what they say " A bad day fishing is better than a good day at work ". The fall smallie bite should continue to be strong and walleye fishing is only gonna get better as the water temps drop. Musky also have a tendancy to be more active and can make there way to the boat as well. I am booking both smallmouth bass and walleye trips through November and December, so give me call to get in on the action.
