 Smallmouth Bass Streams: The largest hellgrammites can swim almost as well as minnows. One tactic we teach in our on-the-stream fly fishing schools mimics this well and is easy to master. Cast your hellgrammite across stream and after it sinks deeply, swim it back across the streambottom by stripping it six inches every ten seconds. Good flies are the Murray's Heavy Black Hellgrammite size 4, Murray's Heavy Olive Hellgrammite size 4 and Murray's Heavy Brown Hellgrammite size 4. Access point #3 (Burnshire Bridge) on the North Fork of the Shenandoah River is good. Access point # 13 (Foster's Landing)...

Murray's Heavy Olive Hellgrammite, Murray's Heavy Brown Hellgrammite and Murray's Heavy Black Hellgrammite.  Smallmouth Bass Streams: The natural hellgrammites are very active in the riffles now and the large bass are feeding heavily upon them.

Murray's Magnum Darter Streamer, Murray's Magnum Creek Chub Streamer and Murray's Magnum Hog Sucker Streamer Smallmouth Bass Streams: The smallmouth bass rivers are full now but the bank bays will be good in several days. The bank bays which are cut into the river banks by floods over the past years often hold some large bass. These bass feed in the deeper areas right where they meet the main currents in the river. A Scientific Anglers Sonar Sink Tip III Sinking Fly Line with a Murray's Fluorocarbon 6 foot 2X Sinking Line Leader helps me get the depth I need...
