Early Season Spring Smallmouth Fly Fishing

To begin every season Northern VT/NY is blesed with some excellent Smallmouth Bass fishing. The first few weeks of May provide exciting action for experienced and beginner anglers. Its a fantasic fish to target for a beginner because they dont require the best or most precise casting. They eat a variety of flies including streamers of all sorts, poppers and other top water bugs, and even large nymph flies. A lot of the water we fish is similar to a beautiful trout stream, so the scenery makes for an even better day!
