Conditions : James River: Middle James: Contributed by local angler Doug Reynolds. Fishing has been fair to good on the middle river with lots of smallmouth being caught, most in the 12 to 14 inch range. Look for shallow rock ledges next to deeper pockets of water. Finding grass and rock boulders together in the middle river will also help increase your odds of finding fish. Bait fish and other critters love the grass and the smallmouth will be scouring the grass for an easy meal. The early mornings and late evenings are still great times to find smallmouth chasing bait in the shallows. Shallow running crankbaits and top water baits continue to be good choices. All of your soft plastics continue to be effective; st craw, scoundrel worms, stickbaits, grubs, paddle tail worms and swimbaits are all good choices. Best colors have been darker colors; black, black/blue to green colors in soft plastics. As always, let's go fishing! See you on the river.
