Smallmouth Bass Streams Fly Fishing Report - May 14, 2020

Posted by Harry Murray on

The natural hellgrammites are becoming active even though it is early for them to hatch. In this stage I can usually catch smallmouth by fishing a Murray's Heavy Black Hellgrammite size 4 upstream dead drift right below the riffles.  Since the water temperature is still cool the bass will not be feeding as actively as they do during the summer.  Bring your chest high waders and enjoy the natural beauty of the river while exploring the different public areas.
