Heading out tomorrow for a float on the Lehigh with a friend and a new boat. It will be the first time I will be targeting smallies with the fly rod. We'll see how it goes.

Time for Shane to come over to the dark side and join the insurgents.

Soon he'll be waking up in the middle of the night shouting "trout are for suckers!"

I am not a fishest, I will fish for anything. I look forward to the white flies and catfish. However, if I am waking up in the middle of the night yelling "trout are for suckers!" Please have me institutionalized!

That fish was great and my first with a fly rod. I tossed my pattern on top of a very large boulder in the middle of the river. Right when it landed on top, that big boy came charging up to the rock. I twitched it off and it grabbed it in mid air falling to the water. The take was the best part of that nice fish. The rest of the day consisted of watching fish chase the patterns, but never grab them. I changed the kind of retrieves and used streamers with stinger hooks.for the nipping fish. Did not land another smallies in the day. Couple rock bass, crappie, and blue gills were picked up. I floated from Bowmanstown to Walnutport and was kinda surprised we did not see more fish. Good time on the maiden voayage of my buddies two man Outcast. Think we are doing it again tomorrow on the Skuke.

Nice fish Becker. It's actually pretty common for river SMBs in summer to see your fly while it's still airborne and intercept it just as it hits the surface or sometimes even before. It's like throwing a frisbee to a dog.

Let us know how you do.

The skuke is growing on me. I did some exploring this morning too; but I was kinda short on time and I only wound up w/ a little rock bass.

Lots of good wading spots + casting room though, which have been tough to find (where I've been looking) lately. Definitely heading back soon.

Wash it off....quick!


The Skuke has not been very kind to me the last few years with SMBs. There are many miles of unproductive water. Try to fish the best water you can find with decent flow, water quality, temp, depth, rocks/structure. When you find such a place, PM me.. Good luck.

A couple of my friends from a certain fly shop in your area and Reading have been floating the Skuke for bass pretty often. They have been having lots of luck. Nothing as big as the one I caught on the Lehigh, but lots of numbers.

The best SMB fishing on the Skuke seems to be from Reading and upstream. Give it a try.

Nice, I think i know those guys as well. If you continue the trips, let me know if you guys ever have room for an extra! I've been meaning to hit the lehigh too...I'll let you know next time I'm fishing up that way.

I've got my private lake trip this Saturday. Pretty pumped about it. Typically catch about 8-10/hr. 12-14" bass and MASSIVE bluegill. Nello is joining me this year.
