I had one of the best days throwing poppers yesterday. To be totally honest I wish had some clients yesterday, because the James river fished so well. The James river is back to being its normal self with clear water and its at a great floating level. Smallmouth bass from 15 inches to 20 inches were up against the banks hiding in the shadows of the over hanging trees. The smallmouth bass could not resist a popper placed near the bank. I have never caught some many big bass in one outing on top water flies. Four smallmouth bass ranged in the 18 to 20 inch range with a bunch more in that 15 to 17 inch range. Hope to see more of this for the rest of the summer. Now would be a great time to get after the hardest pulling fish in freshwater pound for pound. Give me a call today if you have been thinking about a guided trip.
