        Guided Fly and Spey Fishing Trips for Steelhead and Brown Trout with    

Fish Lake Run Outfitters  



Smallmouth fun

Posted on June 5, 2017 at 10:05 AM

A typical smallie

Well the smallmouth fishing is really, really good right now. Took a little bit longer to get heated up than expected due to the cold temps for the first half of May, but now the rivers and creeks in the area all are pretty loaded with bronzebacks. And boy are they just a ton of fun. Though we really like hitting the big water with the big rods, and smallies with eat a swung fly just as well as a steelie will, don't overlook the smaller creeks. These creeks can be full of 3-5 pound smallies, with virtually zero fishing pressure. 

On the small creeks, it is truly a challenge as the clear water means you need to make a stealthy approach, long cast, and fish the right presentation. But man is it just too cool to watch these fish turn and chase down a streamer. Don't be afraid to throw some big patterns, even in the clear water. Yesterday we had a good fish eat a big whiskey hangover in a creek that was about 10 feet wide. The fly was fished on a direct upstream cast, then stripped back down.

So if you're looking for some fun in the off season, grab a 6 weight and give us a call. We should be fishing smallies until mid July.

Tight lines and enjoy the rest of the pics.
