Conditions : James River: Middle James: Contributed by local angler Doug Reynolds. Conditions have been bad on the middle river due to all the rain. So here are a few smallmouth tips and info for you. As with many other fish, smallmouth bass are affected by the moon phases and researching when they are most active according to the moon is very beneficial to any fisherman. This will greatly increase your chances of catching fish if you understand when and how they run. Smallmouth bass concentrate where there is structure, mostly around rocks where there are insects, crawdads, and bait fish where they can feed. Rocks, stumps, and bridge pilings are all ideal places to find smallmouth. Smallmouth will also concentrate in inflowing water. They use the drop-off throughout the day. Plus the inflowing water brings food for them in it. So where the water is flowing inward is where the smallmouth bass will be. Smallmouth bass have very good eyesight, so stick with natural colored lures and jigs for smallmouth. They like brown, orange, olive, black, and yellow bait. Pick colors that imitate bait fish and minnows. For all the current river conditions, weather, maps, times and tips stop by and check us out at www.JamesRiverSmallmouth.com.
