Sorry for the short report last week but I was away in Richmond visiting our son. This week I got a few hours on the lower river fishing from the Tacony bridge up to the Burlington Bristol bridge. With bunker, chunked eels and nightcrawlers I only landed 6 fish 1 to 4 pounds. But I also had about 9 other fish hooked up and just missed 10 or better. Don't know what was happening but I must be out of practice. The other couple days I was out sitting in a tree stand watch deer skirting 30 to 50 yards out of range. But here I have a long season to go. I will be heading up state next week for 10 days with muzzle loader season. So the report my be missing or short again if Anthony will type one. He is up in Canada bear hunting this past week. Last report they killed 2 in the 150 pound range. Today is their last day to hunt.
Now the weather last week with all the rain, north east storm and the hurricane reports were really slow coming in. The upper river did come up a couple feet but this past week came back to normal. And the fishing has been just a good as before the storm. I only talked to 4 different guys that headed up but all did great. One from Lamberville with this customer catching 35 fish all above the 202 bridge. He did most on minnows and grubs. Charlie up at Bull's Island picked up 11 fish on Tuesday and another 15 fish on Thursday all with poppers, torpedo's and grubs. The next guy was fishing the ledges above Point Pleasant catching 21 smallmouth and 7 walleyes with minnows, crankbaits and grubs. Last fisherman drifted from Upper Black Eddy down to Bull's Island. Now he had 1 day of nothing in the upper part but the next day did the last 4 miles and lite the fish up with grubs, tubes and Senko worms. First day he only caught 8 fish but the second pulled in 27 bass, 1 walleyes, 2 catfish and 5 stripers. The lower river has been catfish up and down the river with chicken livers, bunker, nightcrawlers, shrimp and chunked eels. Most guys have been catching 3 to 8 fish a trip with most fish 1 to 3 pounds. 2 flatheads were taken down around the airport both in the 20 pound class.
Trout were stocked in the Pennypack this past Wednesday. From word of mouth most of the fish were stocked from Krewstown Road north to Pine Road. Several guys fishing at Krewstown said there are plenty of fish and several fish 18 to 25 inches swimming around. The ones here being caught were on power baits, meal worms, wax worms and C P Swings. Pat fished at Welsh Road catching 1 trout but also had 3 largemouth bass and several bluegills with spinners. One other customer said there were plenty of trout caught below Pine Road but he only caught smallmouth bass, rock bass and lots of bluegills with spinners, meal worms and nightcrawlers.
Core Creek will be stocked sometime in November. Most guys are still catching a few bluegills and perch along the shore line with meal worms, small minnows and twister tails. But several guys are doing well in the back with largemouth bass with spinner baits. plastic worms and Spro crankbaits. Some of these bass have been 3 to 5 pounds. Fall's Township has been picking up with some smaller walleyes, pickerel and bass. Jim said the mornings have been producing 3 to 6 largemouth bass 12 to 14 inches. He is still doing best with power worms in purple or pumpkinseed. The pickerel and walleyes have been hitting crankbaits and live minnows drifting around the lake. Levittown Lake one fisherman went up expecting trout but was happy to catch 5 decent crappies with trout magnets and Phoebe spoons. Noxamixion John had a great weekend with smaller bass. He said outside the pads with smaller Senko worms 5 to 8 bass and hour have been hitting. Nothing of any size with most fish around a pound. Lou was up fishing off the Tohickon dock catching 2 nice catfish with nightcrawlers. Several guys are starting to head to Marsh Creek looking for the bigger smallmouth bass and perch but so far the lake has been slow. Now the reason has been water temperatures are still in the upper 60 and low 70's. Once things cool off the fishing will pick up. One fisherman up at Green Lane did very good with crappies along the shoreline with smaller minnows, shiners and twister tails. Penn Warner has been a hit or miss place. The bank fisherman said fishing was quite slow this past week. While one of the boat guys did very good on bass and pike fishing crankbaits, spinner baits and jigging metal. Then the next boat guy said only a few perch were hitting in Manor the past 2 weeks. Lots of guys have been fishing the Susquehanna River all doing great with smallies. And with the cooler weather some bigger fish are starting to show up. One fisherman fished at Clemson Island picking up 58 bass all 13 to 18 inches. He did best with minnows, crayfish and grubs. One other fisherman hit the mouth of the Juniata catching over 30 bass all with live minnows. Now further up the Juniata a couple guys have been doing great with smaller bass. These fish have been hitting minnows, twister tails, spinners and top water lures. Unlike the Susquehanna river most of these bass have been 10 to 14 inches.
My Jersey guys did not get out last weekend with all the winds. Before John was still doing very good with bass, pickerel, crappies and perch on Union Lake. He has been doing best with weedless frogs for bass and twister tails and trout magnets for the perch and crappies. Richie buddies did not get out for 10 days with all the wind and fresh water in the lower river. But again before the storm they were crushing smaller stripers, bigger white perch and some snapper blues. Now I did talk to one fisherman down at Salem saying lots of 1 pound white perch are hitting bloodworms, earthworms and smaller twister tails.
Again with the weather saltwater reports were nothing. The water temperature did drop from mid 70's to the low 60's. And before the storm some good catches of stripers were being caught at the Cape May rips. Now most of these fish were under sized but lots of action. The fish were hitting eels and chunked bunker. A few guys headed down telling me some stripers were hitting off the Long Beach jetty and from the amount of eels they bought it must have been a good friend.
Well that is all I have for you this week. Let's hope things pick up this coming week.
9-20- My friend and I got to the Susquehanna river Duncannon area and kayak fished . Best fishing trip in many years! We drifted for 8 miles and caught over 80 smallmouth bass on tubes and Senko's (dark green). We could have easily caught 100 smallies but we were tired and headed in after 7 hours. The average fish was 15’’ we caught plenty of larger fish 17-20’’. Only caught about 10 fish smaller than 12’’. The water is low and clear. We caught most of the fish in the middle of the day. We hit one spot and pulled out at least 20 fish in a 1⁄2 hour between the two of us. The good news is that not one of the fish had sores/ black spots or cancer as had been reported for several years now. All the fish looked extremely healthy. Hopefully the river on the rebound. Thanks, Jack.
9-9-Hello, I got out in the Kayaks this weekend on Sunday 9/6. Drifted from
Yardley to Morrisville. The river is crystal clear. I caught 13 smallmouth
bass using Senko worms. My girlfriend caught a couple too. The largest was
an 18’’ followed by a 17’’, the rest were 12-to-13
’’ . I haven’t seen the this part of river this good in
years for larger smallmouth bass. Another fisherman fishing from shore was
catching small stripers on top water spooks in the evening he said it has
been really good as well. Thanks for the great reports! Jack.
9-4-Had a good day fishing the neshaminy Tyler park off of richboro newtown
road. Caught about 10 smallmouth all on crayfish and minnows out of Tyler.
Most medium size 1 was about 1 1/2
Fisherman Magazine -JIM HUTCHINSON'S UPDATE
A steady diet of E/NE winds has really roiled the surf; it appears to have put a few striped bass right at our feet as well! Folks hitting the suds this week post-Joaquin have found success soaking clams while also tossing plugs into the wash. NW winds earlier in the week helped clean up the surf, and should set the stage for a terrific run heading into the weekend ahead. Some of the North Jersey party boats have turned attention to the bluefish again this week, with reports coming out of Belmar of choppers in the high teens. Optimism is running high for a good fall run of stripers and bluefish, which has LBI surfcasters amped up for the start of the 'Derby' on Saturday. Tautog are still biting at local jetties after the storm, while farther offshore the seas are subsiding to 2 to 3 on Sunday and into Monday, which could turn canyon hunters eastbound in search of a good tuna bite. Black sea bass in New Jersey and Delaware reopens on October 22, as many bottom fishing fans are gearing up for the biscuits - but until then, if you're lucky enough to have Columbus Day off this Monday, you've got plenty of options as it stands for a three-day weekend of fishing action. Don't forget, the fall trout stocking program kicks of on Tuesday, October 13 with more than 3,000 fish being deposited throughout New Jersey on day one.
