Bass Fishing Report -

Some very exciting smallmouth bass fishing I get this time of the year comes from those sections of the river where there are small feeder streams entering the main rivers. One feeder on the North Fork of the Shenandoah River close to Edinburg is ten feet wide. One several miles upstream is thirty feet wide. However, they all contribute many minnows to the main rivers. I like to wade or float to within fifty feet of what we call the "mouths" of these feeders. Big bass cruise in and out of these areas so I fish them with big flies...

The bank bays I discussed last week are still providing good action. I find these areas which lie right beside very fast currents in the main part of the river often give me larger bass if I use a Sinking Tip III Fly Line or a Fast Sinking Head Fly Line (200 grain). I fan several casts deep into the bank bays, then use these sinking fly lines with a Murray's Fluorocarbon 6 foot 2X Sinking Line Leader to crawl my streamers along the streambottom. Shenk's White Streamer size 4, Murray's Magnum Hog Sucker Streamer size 4 and Murray's Sculpin...

The natural hellgrammites are becoming active in the deep pockets in the fast riffles. The bass are feeding heavily upon them. On the North Fork of the Shenandoah River access point #5 (Chapman's Landing) is producing good fishing. On the South Fork of the Shenandoah River access point #14 (Bealer's Ferry) is producing good fishing. A productive tactic is to wade into the river and fish a Murray's Heavy Black Hellgrammite size 4 or a Murray's Heavy Olive Hellgrammite size 4 upstream dead drift through these pockets.

The deep riffles I mentioned last week are fishing well. However, those with the fastest currents and deepest pockets are giving me more large bass when I use a fast sinking head fly line. We have been floating the rivers in our Hyde Drift Boat which gives use access to the deepest cuts in these riffles. Murray's Stonecat Streamer size 4 and Murray's Sculpin Marauder size 4 are both producing many nice bass for us. On the North Fork of the Shenandoah River access point #5 (Chapman's Landing) is fishing good. On the South Fork of the Shenandoah River access...
