  1. Default New River Smallies in Mid April

    Hey guys, I'm planning a trip to the New around the NC/VA line on April 10th and was wondering what flys i need to tie up for the trip. I have fished the new in the summer a lot but never in early spring. Just wondering if there were any special ways of catching them this time of year, or a good fly to use. Any help would be greatly appreciated guys! Thanks fellas and good fishing!

    I would have a good selection of streamers: Woolly Buggers, clousers, marauders, sculpins, etc. I would definitely have some popping bugs too and probably some big attractor dry flies and nymphs.

    That should be a fun trip. Are you floating or wading?

    C'mon back in August when it and the smallie fishing is HOT!

    Try any streamer patter or a helgramite pattern.

    As Jackster said come back in August when it really heats up.
    Of an evening the Smallies will destroy some top water poppers.
