Smallmouth and More Smallmouth

The last 3 weeks have been nothing but trips in pursuit of the bronzebacks. Even with the river being at historical lows, the fishing has been stellar. The low flows have made floating a little more difficult, but the Towee and the Clacka have performed well and they are light enough that dragging them through some skinny shoals isn’t too difficult.

My friend and fellow guide, Ben Levin made the trip across the border and we enjoyed a great day on the water  with the streamer bite being red hot. The streamer bite has stayed pretty consistent but we have had to resort to dredging the bottom with crawfish patterns on occasion. Although not as exciting as seeing a smallie crush a double deceiver, the crawfish patterns have produced some quality fish and saved the day on several occasions.

We are finally seeing some rain in the basin and the flows are creeping up which should have the fishing firing on all cylinders in the near future.
