Smallmouth Bass Streams Fly Fishing Report - July 2, 2020

Posted by Harry Murray on

I have great success catching smallmouth bass on the Mr. Rapidan Skater in size 8 in the tails of the pools when I see the bass leaping to catch the adult damselfies and dragonflies as they fly low over the surface of the river. A foot long skating action every 10 seconds is ideal.   This week my guides have been doing well with the Murray's Marauder size 6 in olive, black, and pearl.

Both the North Fork and the South Fork of the Shenandoah River are clear and fishable.  

  Ft. CFS
North Fork at Mount Jackson 2.60 95.8
North Fork at Strasburg 2.05 219
South Fork at Luray 2.66 674
