Best I have experienced has to be the Kennebec up by Waterville/Augusta. Three years ago I fished it and the avg. bass was 17" and caught upto 22" I couldn't believe it as I am used to fishing mid-atlantic waters that BTW- We also caught landlock salmon and trout. Probably what happens when a state actually cares about conservation.

The juniata is still pretty good. For out of the region I'd say the best I've fished is the Mississippi above Minneapolis. It's difficult to wade because the flow is pretty good.

As an Upstate New Yorker. Some of the best smallmouth rivers I would say are in Upstate NY. We have the Northern part of the Hudson which is still producing amazing Smallmouth. My personal favorite the Sacandaga River is amazing and good for tons of action in a day, with all types of flies.

When I went to the Alleghany a couple of weeks ago, the smallmouth fishing was amazing. I don't know if that counts because it was only for a few days, but I did very well and I can't complain about the Alleghany, even if the water was in the 80's when I went.

Without any reservations at all the Juniata/Susquehanna watershed is the best in the east if not the world.

I'm guessing you mean somewhere below Wells on the Sacandaga? I've fished for trout above there and I think it's heavily stocked up there. I've gotten some nice smallies in the Sacandaga Lake. I have friends that live on the lake and I've done well right from their back yard when visiting. I might need to check out the river a little more...

I agree that upstate NY is better than anything in PA right now. I live 15 minutes from the Susky, but spend more time chasing smallies in the Adirondacks, Maine, and Ontario.

Juniata has some incredible fishing, have fished the whole length at various times this year from the Petersburg Dam to the mouth.
