It's February 4 and 45 degrees. I'm almost temted to strip the shrink wrap off my boat and go find some smallies!

Crazy weather but I'm not complaining...

The weather is nutso! I spent quite a bit of time with a buddy of mine fly fishing with little poppers and catching large mouth and pickeral. What a blast.

I never fished smallies much. I used to have good luck on a pond in Greenwood called Twitchell fly fishing with a fast sinking line and using a Barne's Special streamer.

I was after browns in the early spring but they seemed to like what I offered. Is that a common thing or just a fluke, MJ?

Streamers, Mudlers and big Nymphs are all good for smallies! You were fishing deep, which is where the SM like to be before the water warms up.
SM and Browns are pretty close in what they like and where they like to be.

Try the Penobscot if there is an open catch & release season for them now.

And yes, they like flukes too!! <grin>

Howdy BN, I don't fish the lake but I do like the stream a lot! I do a bit of fishing and trapping there. Actually I just purchased some property that borders the stream!
Good to have you here!

Hey Madjack:
If you ever need some deep running fast water spinners contact Kennebec Tackle. They hand make the best bass lures you have ever cast. I love river bass !!!!!!
