I am very admittedly a novice river fisherman. I've done it a few times with very limited success. I know the steelhead craze is beginning, but my question is if you can still expect decent smallmouth success during this time of year, and if so, what's working? Any tips would be great. I don't mind getting a little wet or dirty, and I think some of the things you get to see on the rivers are worth the trip. In an effort to help you pros help me, here's the situation. I prefer using ultra light stuff. I have some reels with 4 lb, and others with 6 lb test on them. I use an UL ugly stik rod, and try not to carry too much tackle with me (a tackle bag with roughly 50 lures in it). I try to keep a little bit of everything in the bag (shallow cranks, senko's/powerbaits/trick sticks, swim baits, rooster tails, mepps aglia's, vibe'e's, buzzbaits, spinners). Should I add or subtract anything?
