The angling techniques used range from top-water bugs with a fly-rod to deep water jigging with braided lines. Technique used is typically determined by water temperature, structure, and depth.
Early in the season when the waters are still cool, most Smallmouth Bass will be found deeper in the water column and can be landed with deeper water jigs and lures.
