smallie flies

does any one have any tips on what to use for smallmouth flies in the midwest?
(NE Illinois-Kankakee River)?
I am planning a day in the next week or so, and I am new to fly fishing. Any tips would be helpful.
Thanks.

Subsurface- Clouser minnows, beadhead wooly buggers, bunny deceivers, etc.

Topwater- Gurglers, Sneaky Petes, crease flies, etc.

You should get plenty of attention with these flies. Have fun.

Smallie flies

White and chartreuse clousers, bubble gum clousers, sneaky Pete's, dalberg divers,
try a tube with a bead weight inside on a worm hook, works like a charm on a fly rod with intermediate line
