One Small Stream Bass

Thirty minutes from Lynchburg, VA you can fish for small stream trout, but that’s not what we’ve been doing. Recently, we’ve spent some time up in the mountains in search of small stream smallmouth. It’s been incredible. Smallmouth are aggressive, eat anything, and don’t spook as easily as brook trout. It makes for some easy big action days. Streamers, poppers, wooly buggers, you name it they’ll inhale it. And yes, you spend a LOT of time wrangling with 5 inch sunfish, but they just add to the fun!
