Winter Smallmouth

Type: Freshwater
Region: Western
Location: Potomac River

River smallmouth bass fishing can be very challenging during the winter months, but under the right conditions it can very productive as well. The best fishing is usually during warming trends and just prior to an approaching weather system. Steve Peperak and I were fortunate enough to be able to fish the Potomac River under these conditions recently and landed many 14 - 17" smallmouth on a variety of lures. I can't think of a better way to spend a winter day!
