Upper Delaware River’s smallmouth bass fishing slowed last week after rain, but good numbers were still angled, Bill Brinkman from Philadelphia’s Brinkman’s Bait & Tackle wrote in a report on the shop’s website. The river was full of leaves, so a good part of fishing was spent cleaning leaves off the fishing line. The smallmouths weren’t monsters, but many were 14 to 17 inches. A few 17- to 22-inch walleyes were mixed in. Farther upstream, an angler who fishes the river at the Water Gap said smallmouthing dropped off quickly but some decent walleyes were hooked there. Gulp minnows on bucktails winged them. A 37-inch musky was even fought from the river at the Gap, on a livelined chub from the river. On the lower river near the store, fishing for catfish 1 to 4 pounds and small striped bass was great. The catfish bit bunker, shrimp, chicken livers or bagels. The stripers hit chicken livers, silver crank baits or Rat-L-Traps. In the Schuylkill River, plenty of catfish and small stripers chomped downstream from the Fairmount dam. Along the dam, walleye fishing picked up on rubber shads, Walleye Divers and shallow-swimming Rapala Shad Raps.
