I read on another site the regulation closing any fishing for bass in the lower susky during the spring spawn has been rescinded.

Sure enough, I check on the PFBC page and the reg is no longer there in 2019 > https://pfbc.pa.gov/fishpub/summaryad/bass_cr.htm

The lower Susky is still C&R for SMB all year round and no spring tournaments allowed.

From the link > NO HARVEST—CATCH AND IMMEDIATE RELEASE ONLY. It is unlawful for an angler to cast repeatedly into a clearly visible bass spawning nest or redd in an effort to catch or take bass

And this applies to the Juniata as well?

I was out yesterday on the north branch Susquehanna water level is finally just about right but unfortunately there was a little bit of ice floating around. I did have a small fished hooked but ended up taking a skunking for the afternoon. It final seems like alot of folks fishing the river are not keeping the stringers of bass like they used to I don't see it around my stretch anymore. In the first place smallmouth aren't that great of table fare compared to say a walleye swimming in the same run or for that matter even a mid sized catfish. I also think the tournament world has done good for the smallmouth alot of the local guys truly respect the fish and in turn convince other guys to do the same. Now just think of we could get this same group of people to respect trout like they do smallmouth.
