Topwater Smallmouth is going strong in the North Delta, the last few weeks have really turned the bite on! I have been fishing kids & adults alike who are new to Fly Fishing! Smallmouth is ideal in getting anglers hooked on the sport! In addition, seasoned veterans cannot resist the lure of Topwater explosions on light tackle.
We primarily target Smallmouth with 4-5wt Rods & size 6 poppers in various colors. Also, when the fish shy off poppers we use popper droppers. Popper droppers consist of a popper 1st & dropping weighted patterns 12-18" from the poppers hook. These droppers can include small wooly buggers, crawdads, bead head nymphs & Carey specials to keep the Smallmouth biting when the sun gets high.
Smallmouth Fly Fishing is simply fun in the sun throughout the Summer, get your Bass on!
