Full Report: Cumberland County: Water is flowing swiftly and frigidly in all of the streams of Cumberland County. Very little ice has been noted, and any ice covering a pond or lake should be considered hazardous until its thickness can be verified.

Full Report: Cumberland County: Water levels remain typically low along Cumberland Countys waterways. This makes ideal conditions for wade-fishing. The walleye run is imminent in the Susquehanna River, but water temperatures need to drop to around 65 degrees before the action really picks up. A few walleyes in the 19 inch range have been observed in anglers creels near York Haven. A six inch steel leader is helpful when fishing low river waters, to prevent loosing expensive lures on jagged rocks.

There are several fall trout stockings throughout the county. Check the stocking list at the Fish and Boat Commission's website, to find out if your favorite stream is getting an allotment of trout this autumn.

Get out and enjoy the early autumn weather, fall foliage, and quiet waters around Cumberland County this year!

Full Report: Cumberland County: Susquehanna River levels at Harrisburg are flowing in the 4.5 feet to 5 feet range, which makes for optimal boating depths.

Full Report: Cumberland County: With the boating season upon us, now is the perfect time to check your safety equipment prior to using your watercraft. Make sure you have a USCG approved wearable personal flotation device on board for every passenger -- its not just a good idea, its the law! If your boat requires a fire extinguisher, make sure it is charged, and properly mounted.

Take time to visually inspect your vessel for cracks in the hull. Pay especially close attention to the transom, where the motor attaches to the boat. The weight of the outboard can cause hairline cracks on the hull, if it is too heavy. Remember, it is a good idea to have an anchor and paddles on board, to prevent any mishaps while on the water. Plan ahead, and have a safe boating season. Walleye are active on the Susquehanna River. Most anglers are using live minnows or green rapala-style lures.
