Winter Smallmouth

With the warmer than normal temps, we’ve turned some of our attention to fishing for winter smallmouth and northern pike. Both stripping streamers and dredging techniques have brought fish to net.

Despite the colder water temps, these fish still pack a punch when hooked and will cork over your rod. If you want to try your game at something other than steelhead this winter, it’s program specific, so you’ll need to check in with us on the most opportune times to go.
