Bass fishing is starting to pick up. This time of year the bass are just starting to spawn and are cruising pretty shallow. The late afternoon spring winds can make it difficult to cast, but using the RIO Smallmouth Bass line will help with accurate casting and make hucking big bugs easy. Now is a great time to learn to catch bass on the fly. This spring and summer will be a ideal for bass fishing with the drought and higher water temps that will make trout fishing in affected areas an irresponsible choice that will lead to higher fish mortality rates. Stripping wooly buggers and streamers with an intermediate line or poppers on a floating line is sure to satisfy that fishing itch.
