Smallmouth Bass Streams Fly Fishing Report - March 27, 2019

The mouths of these streams hold great numbers of hogsuckers and crayfish and the bass feed heavily on them. The mouth of Big Stoney Creek and Narrow Passage Creek are excellent areas.  My favorite flies for these areas are the Murray's Magnum HogSucker size 4 and Murray's Crayfish size 6. North Fork at Mount Jackson 3.63 ft ...
