GENERAL INFORMATION:

Smallmouth Bass fishing is great right now.  With water level and clarity back to normal, fish are feeding aggressively on Crayfish and Poppers.  We just expanded our Smallmouth Bass fly selectionat the shop or check out the CWO online store.  With the temperatures moving into the 90’s, fishing has been most productive in the early morning, before the sun comes over the mountains.

 

Catching an early morning view of a sun-lit foggy river and fishing flying out of the water, is an experience of a lifetime.
