Thumbs up Smallmouth Bass

I catch and release more smallmouth on yellow body/white hackle woolie-bugger (size #8) than any other fly.

The smallies at Beaver Creek State Park in South-East Ohio just slam that fly...

I caught a few 18+ inch smallmouth there, but mostly in the 12-16 inch range.

I like to fish then just before the dam, right where the water bulges at the rock shelf, it's a smallmouth bananza... :hehe:

I also had limited luck using a purple rabbit strip zonker type fly, these seem to do well during heavy overcast days and just at sunrise and sunsets.
Spring will sprung...
The grass will riz...
Wonder where those mayflies is?
