    Smallies on the BIG D

    Want to go this weekend around the gap. Does anyone know the condition of the river? I can see it's ripping but is it clear?

    If not I'll hit a trout stream. When is the last time you could say that the end of June ?

    River is still up, but not to high, and is still a little off color. The smallies were on the bite yesterday evening. You should do fine.

    Re: Smallies on the BIG D

    What do you guys think

    Should I go downstream of D Water Gap (rt 80 to rt 46) or upstream?


    I'm planning to try to swing some streamers (practice for upstate)

    Well...if you go up to the Belvidere/Portland area you might bang a striper.

    Ed, thanks for looking our for my well-being.

    I always wear my raincoat when there's a chance I might get wet.

    Sounds like a good plan.

    Bass in the morning, stripers in the evening...

    Did you ever used your 2 hander over there?

    drumik,

    Don't be concerned about the water level. The smallie action is good even in high water. But, when it turns to chocolate milk stay home. As for wading, I rarely go past my knees. What you need to do is alot of walking. Smallies tend to group together in pockets and runs with slow to medium currents. If you give it the time, you will find high water holding areas and have a field day catching fish. Also, in high water smallies tend to hug the banks.

    Thank you

    Tell you the truth I don't really care about bass that much. (as long as I’m getting bites time to time I’m good with it)


    I just want be able to wade out at least 15 feet away from the shore so I can try to swing some streamers. (Keep in mind that I'm newbie in spey casting)

    My perfect water will be fast to medium runs
