Smallmouth Bass Streams Fly Fishing Report- April 17, 2017
Murray's Magnum Darter Streamer, Murray's Magnum Creek Chub Streamer and Murray's Magnum Hog Sucker Streamer.
Smallmouth Bass Streams: We are catching some nice size bass in the bank bays which are cut into the river banks by previous floods. These may reach ten to fifteen feet back into the bank and extend fifteen to twenty feet down the river with the water running from three to five feet deep in them. There are many of these feeding stations downstream from access point #3 (Burnshire Bridge) on the North Fork of the Shenandoah River and upstream from access point #11 (Seakford) on the South Fork of the Shenandoah River. Effective flies for these bank bays are Murray's Magnum Hog Sucker Streamer size 4, Murray's Magnum Darter Streamer size 4 and Murray's Magnum Creek Chub Streamer size 4.
