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...

The deep riffles are a great source for the bass at this time of the year. The large sculpin minnows and stonecats here attract some of the largest bass. I start at one side of the river and fish across stream as far as I can wade. Then I work my way downstream imparting a slow line hand stripping action to my streamers. The Murray's Sculpin Marauder size 4 and Murray's Stonecat Streamer size 4 are very productive. On the North Fork of the Shenandoah River the water downstream from access point #18 (Meem's Bottom) is excellent. On the South...

Some of the back eddies in the smallmouth bass rivers are six feet deep and the bass are lethargic in the cold water. For this reason I believe I catch more bass by swimming my Murray's Tungsten Cone Head Marauders size 4 right along the streambottom. There is some very productive water fifty yards downstream from access point #3 (Burnshire Bridge) on the North Fork of the Shenandoah River. There is also productive water upstream along the East side of access point #11 (Seakford) on the South Fork of the Shenandoah River.
