Anglers throughout the Middle Susquehanna Watershed -- running from where the Penns Creek enters the Susquehanna below Selinsgrove up through both the North and West branches of the river -- are encouraged to share photos of the fish they catch, and where they caught them.
In an effort to better chart any potential problem areas on the river or any of the tributaries that flow into it, the Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper is asking everyone to share photos of any concerning spots or lesions and where the fish was caught using the Water Reporter app -- or to email them directly to the office.
The chart above includes the steps necessary to share a report -- including downloading of the Water Reporter app, joining the Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper group, and then starting a new post with a photo, location and hashtag (#) designation from above to describe the potential issue.
Anglers are encouraged to toggle on the Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper before publishing the post so it can be properly registered. For those unable to navigate the app, photos and reports can be sent directly to the riverkeeper office via email or messages sent to the Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper Facebook page.
In an effort to show the full picture of potential problems (or lack thereof), anglers are welcome to share pictures of any fish they catch, regardless of any signs of lesions or abnormalities.
Ultimately, reports from throughout the fishing/boating seasons will be logged on a map and shared at the Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper website (middlesusquehannariverkeeper.org)
