Conditions : Shenandoah River: Flows are currently reasonable for catching large wintertime Smallmouth, but stream temperatures are still too cold. Focus on warmer days to increase chances of picking up bites. Manageable flows with water temperatures in the low 40’s are the best conditions to offer success for Smallmouth Bass this time of year. Additionally, it is suggested that evening trips would offer the best chance for success due to warming water temperatures throughout the day. Furthermore, sunny days and cloudy water allows for increased water temperatures and poorer fish visibility, allowing the fish to be more active and less discriminating when it comes to lures. Smallmouth can be caught on soft plastic and skirted jigs, crankbaits, weighted plastics, chatter baits, and crayfish imitation crankbaits. Lures that balance lifelike characters and allow a variety of retrieve speeds, such as weighted swim baits, may be the answer to carefully feeding fish. Swim baits imitating forage fish low in the water column would be a wise switch occasionally from deeper fished lures if fish are proving to be more active. Recent reports for Channel Catfish larger than 28” have been reported, as well! The Shenandoah River is a phenomenal Channel Catfish fishery.
