Well the smallmouth season is here and things are starting to heat up! The females are just starting to show themselves after recuperating from the spawn. We had our first 20″ fish of the season yesterday. With the weather warming and the Mississippi River dropping things should only improve. The St. Croix River is at summer levels and is fishing pretty well. The Mississippi is just starting to turn on. In a couple of weeks it should be going full tilt. Don’t forget those trout trips also. There are bugs hatching all over the rivers and the trout are eager to eat them. The last hour of daylight is the magic time take advantage of the hatches because they won’t be lasting a whole lot longer. Good Luck and keep casting!
