I am getting excellent smallmouth bass fishing on the North Fork of the Shenandoah River around the aquatic grassbeds where they feed heavily on shiner minnows. If the water adjacent to these grassbeds is less than 3 feet deep I use a Silver Outcast Streamer size 4. If the water is more than 2 feet deep I use Murray's Heavy Shiner size 6.
On the North Fork of the Shenandoah there are thick grassbeds downstream from Chapman's Landing that gives us great smallmouth fishing.
The South Fork of the Shenandoah is still too muddy to fish.
