I live in Anacortes and have been stillwater fishing (for trout). But now I plan on targeting Whatcom Lake for Smallmouth from a float tube. Apparently there are two boat launches and a trail head where I can put my tube in. I'm thinking poppers in black, green, or yellow. I studied crayfish fly tying a bit, but I'm not sure what pattern to start with. I'll have some semi seal leeches in yellow brown and black. I'm sure some members here could save me years of experimenting...As always, any input would be much appreciated.
