    Looks like the old "SUSKIE" is finally ready to start fishing! I was beginning to think that spring forgot us here in the PineCreek valley! The canadian Geese are flocking back in droves and my St'Croix's are all fired up and ready to go fishing! Now I just gotta re-new my License ($36.00!!!!) ouchy... Oh well, still gotta get some new lures and line anyway. Time to hit those little tributaries with the fly-rod too! Smallies on a fly-rod is great fishing in my book! Trying out some new patterns this spring too...I'm just so excited to get out of this house for a few hours with my dog and go fishing! How bout you? Here is a link to check the Susquehanna river and how high or low the water is! To check for flooding or if it it is relatively safe or low enough to start fishing it.

    By next week, the shad should be running, the stripers and walleyes should be biting.
