New to Smallmouth fishing

Recommended Posts

I have never fished for smallmouth other then in small shallow creeks where the fish dont get about 6-10 oz. Does anyone know where in NoVa where I could go to catch a nice one???

drive down to shenandoah and rent a canoe. go to downriver outfitters. not huge smallmouth but you should catch a good amt.

Don't go to the Shenandoah, there are better options since the fish kills...

NitroMan, PM me if you want an OK spot near Centreville or some good spots near Fredericksburg.

Reply sent. I forgot to list the spot in Centreville but it isn't as good as some of the others I told you about in the PM. If you really want to know it, send me another PM or ask in a reply.

No problem, let me know if you want to do some wading on a weekend this summer before August 15th. I may have my trolling motor for my jon boat set up by then, though

NORTH FORK OF THE SOUTH BRANCH OF THE POTOMAC HOLDS SOME HUGE SMALLMOUTH AND THE NUMBERS ARE OUT OF THIS WORLD. FISHING BY CANOE IS THE WAY TO GO. EAGLES NEST OUTFITTERS WILL DROP YOU OFF AND PICK YOU UP FOR A SMALL FEE IF YOU HAVE YOUR OWN CANOE PLUS THEY RENT AS WELL. 2 DAY TRIP IS AWESOME, YOU CAN CAMP RIGHT ON THE SIDE OF THE RIVER. PLUS YOU DONT WANNA BE RUSHED TO GET THROUGH A 15 MILE TRIP IN 1 DAY. I DO IT AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR. OTHER THAN COME ON DOWN TO THE NEW RIVER WHERE THE SMALLMOUTH ARE RIDICULOUS. ITS LIKE THEY ARE ALL EQUIPED WITH .351 SMALL BLOCKS ON THE BACKS.

im not too sure on this as ive never gotten to fish it, but i hear goose creek that runs through the ashburn/leesburg area is supposed to hold some nice smallies. i personally fished the shenandoah and the rivana river near charlottesville. the rivana has a decent population and there are some big smallies there (ive lost quite a few on poor hooksets) but my biggest out of either river was maybe only 3lbs.
