Anyone ever fish the WB of the Susquehanna up around kettle creek state park? I was up there last week but it looked to low to fish so I didn't bother. Everything was super low.

It always looked an off-color green from the AMD to me. I don't think it's worth fishing until down around Lock Haven or Jersey Shore.

While I've not fished that specific section, if I lived up there, I'd be doing a lot of exploring. The WB has shown dramatic improvement over the years.

you have to fish it closer to the mouths of the feeders. kettle and cooks runs are pretty AMD in the lower sections so its not very good there and down for a while. but where the Sinnemahoning dumps in and above its a little better. nice canoeing river.

The PFBC has done extensive electrofishing surveys of the West Branch. Maybe you can find the reports online.

It hasn't rained since? Check the gauges. Streams are looking very good up here right now.

Maybe it hasn't rained very much in the upper WB basin (say above Wmsport) since Labor Day, but there looks to have been anywhere from 1.25 to 3.00 of rain pretty much basin-wide there since Labor Day, although maybe 10-25% of that came in the last day or so.

Still not very much, but any is more than none..

Has anyone fished right by the lower campground on kettle creek state park? There was a nice deep hole there but seemed to be devoid of fish. I saw a couple trout and that was it. I suspect in the spring it's stocked and then gets cleaned out quick.

There are some fish where the cleaner streams dump into the WB Susquehanna up that way. Young Womans Creek, Sinnamahoning, etc. You need an influx of cleaner water for there to be fish in the river. There are fish (mostly catfish) just not a ton of them and not enough that I would ever consider fishing the area.
