Trips and Lessons

New River Smallie
New River--Float Trips (1 or 2 Anglers)

The New is without a doubt a world-class bronzeback fishery.  Our fishing techniques and presentations may change throughout the season as needed to target trophy specimens, but our general fishing window for smallmouth bass is April through October.  Walleye and muskie are pursued from November through March.

 

For casting to and fighting big smallmouth and walleye we recommend 9'-7/8 wt. rods with a 7.5' tapered leader (1x). For muskie, 10/11 wt. rods and 80 lb. leaders are used.
