    The Smallmouth Bass is a warrior. In my opinion one of the greatest flyrod gamefish that swims. Nice work Leland. Now get on over to the Snake and the mouths of it's tribs next spring for some of the greatest smallie fishing in North America! Lightweight speying at it's very best. Coach

    Don't fergit the Vienner sausages, potted meat, and saltines. Gotta love them pulverized, cased, and pureed hog parts. :thumb:

    Good to hear this. I enjoyed some awesome fly-fishing for smallies back when I was in eastern WA. I've sure missed having them nearby...

    Mike,
    It won't be long before they are nearby. I've been finding smallies in lakes that never had them before. Bubba the bucket biologist has been hard at work.

    Here is the piggy I was talking about. Caught it from my buddy's dock while at his bbq. Thought I would flip my favorite black jitterbug and came up big. That is the biggest jitterbug they sell and the fish sipped it like a mayfly! She had a belly packed with eggs, ready to spawn. I will admit the pic is a bit long armed but that was just to try and get it close to the rod for records. But....my buddy got the same fish about 4 days later and measured it to 20" while I was with him. By than the bass' belly had shrunk.

    You can't even swim in the area of my buddy's dock right now without being bit on the fingers and toes......its crazy!

    I've heard Campbell is a largemouth lake and I have caught both browns and largemouths in Cranberry. One is on Whidbey and the other is Fidalgo.

    Ahhh, Smallies . . . the always-reliable "fill-in" fish. Mean, obnoxious, red-eyed devils . . . absolutely spastic when you try to lip them. Tie something in black, with a bushy soft hair/hackle head & a zonker tail . . . throw it out, let it slowly sink, and twitch it periodically . . . many a largemouth has succumbed to that particular seduction (best down here was 8 1/4# & she was spawned-out & sans gut . . . bet she would have broken the 9# barrier a few weeks prior.

    Call your local WDFW office and ask to talk with the Warmwater Team bio. They will know and it's their job to share the info.
