Popper fishing continues to produce the big bass on the James river. The bass have there eyes on the surface for sure looking for that dying cicada to float by. I had Matti out today for the first time. Matti is know new comer to fly fishing and it showed on the bass he put in the boat today. Matti landed a 20.5 inch smallmouth bass, 19 inch largemouth bass and a 19.5 inch smallmouth bass today all on topwater flies. The topwater bite is on fire right now, don’t let it pass you by its a long winter.
