October fish on the Elk River watershed


Recommended Posts

October always was a big fish bite on smallmouths....flyrod and live craws always produced my biggest bronze-backs for the season, for some reason spinning gear with the craws was not as productive as the floating flyline combo, perhaps the presentation was more to their liking

First pic looks like Linda Griffith's and the second looks like just up around the bend from White Bluff. 

You didn't give me much to work with on the last one. Nice job on the fish!

          Fly rod and live craws? That is an oxymoron if I ever heard of such a thing Blasphemy I say. An unnatural act against nature. I bet you are a carp bait fisherman too?  Live bait and smallmouth? That is a killing situation,

I will fish bait on a fly rod, the long rod is about all I ever use, but bait is a catch and keep tactic, imo, for any fish.  One of the things I disagree with in our fisheries management.

I don't think I have ever gut hooked a bronze back with this method,  a lot more to it than first glance would say.its a big fish method, just don't catch many fish under 2 pounds that way..as far as fisheries management well that another thread or 10 soon I'm sure
