I am in Boone and looking or good smallie fishing nearby. Any ideas? If anyone knows where to fish during any part of the year and what bait is best I'd appreciate any help. Thanks!
Crummy, I've ran class 2 rapids while fighting smallies on a fly rod, I love em both smallmouth and canoes. I like to put in on the North Fork of the New near Boone and fish it to Mouth of Wilson VA. It's about 97 river miles of Smallmouth paradise, it takes about 7 day's, but there plenty of good camp sites along the river. I've done the trip several times guiding clients, it makes for a unforgetable trip.Right on Daniel. Locally I go to John's River. There are other streams that have them. One of my favorite places is Fontana Lake. Smallies are one reason I love the canoe.
