Smallie On The Fly Caught By Austin Green

We are having a great season of smallmouth bass fishing! Katie Blizzard and I have been tearing of the smallies since late-April and we are continuing to catch them extremely consistently. A lot of the bass are on the smaller side, but we are also landing some hogs! The bass are extremely eager to take black wholly buggers, bucktail minnows, and Pat Cohen’s Fat Head Deceivers. While fishing deeper holes, a good sinking line is a must. Otherwise, fat-shooting head bass floating lines are the way to go. A good, short 6 weight is our go-to. We use FlyStik’s and CLAs from Ross–paired with Sage or Airflo Bass Taper fly lines.

  1. Smallies on a 5 weight – quite a ride and a lot of fun! If you ever get a chance, take a fly rod to Chequamagon Bay in Lake Superior, it’s a world-class fishery there that’s friendly for fly-rods. You won’t regret it!
