Where are you from? Generally speaking there's stream SM fishing relatively close to just about anywhere in PA. Would help to narrow down our responses.

As far as flies...Buggers, Clousers, and Poppers. All you'll need.

Hey, welcome! You're in a pretty good spot then! Kray will surely get you into plenty of them this year! He knows his spots, but you're in a good area for Smallies. The Susky, Juniata, Shermans, Conodoguinet, Wiconisco, and Swatara are all close by and are all at least decent Smallie water. If you guys wanna hit the Swatara this Summer, let me know.

I can't really help you with where as I generally fish for trout in PA, not smallmouth. I always have poppers, buggers, baitfish, and crayfish patterns in my smallmouth box. Colors that work well are White, white and red, Olive over white, olive, black, yellow, tan (for crayfish) and blue (popper). Good luck and welcome.

Oh boy, looks like the youngster is going to keep you guys busy. I think this question might have been generated by me taking him to the PFBC booth on Saturday and making sure we were both up to speed on the smallmouth regulations for this spring. Basically Sunbury to Lancaster on the Susky is closed to bass fishing from sometime in early May until June 15th or so. Yes, it's illegal to even target them for C&R. The regs apply to 37 miles of the Juniata as well and extend 1/2 mile into the feeders of those rivers.

I didn't want to take him down the river and end up getting our butts in a sling. We will have to stick to the non special reg waters for that time of the year or better yet, just go trout fishing or try for a pike in Memorial Lake.

PS. Expect on him having several thousand questions and I encouraged him to talk to other fishermen since they may give him a completely different take on a situation. Told him the more he learns, the better off he'll be.

If you ever find yourself up Erie way Elk Creek and 20 Mile at the mouth get some very large lake Erie Smallmouth in them.
