It’s still a little early for smallmouth bass season on the New River but things should heat up this month. Last year was a very good year for Tri-State Angler Guide Service with our clients landing good numbers of smallmouth bass and the average size being larger. With the increased water we are seeing better size and weight smallmouth bass but the numbers are down some which only makes sense. Less competition, more food, bigger fish. Also, with the increased water it is imperative to know your quarry and with Tri-State Angler’s years of experience you will stand the best chance of having a successful day of fishing. We expect this year to be even better as the smallmouth bass we caught last year, in larger numbers, were in the thirteen to fourteen inch range so should be pushing the fifteen to eighteen inch range. Ounce for ounce you can’t beat a New River smallmouth bass.
