Smallmouth Fly Fishing in early Spring on the river. Streamers, Popping Bugs, etc.
Check the water temps in the early Spring. Bass are very temperature oriented. Early Spring smallies and bucketmouths are looking for a place to hang out and hold. So, don't look for riffles and strong currents. Look for them to sit on the edges of the currents - watching for bait fish.
Don't always choose a big profile. Go with something smaller. Slow down your presentation. Setting out, you may have to change different fly patterns and locations.
