Shenandoah smallmouth bass fishing can be very good in the spring. The days are getting longer and it seems that you can get a lot more done. Two weeks ago I visited my home town of Strasburg, VA for my grandparents 65th wedding anniversary! It was a very nice but a short visit. I did get a chance to fish for only a few hours with the folks at Murrays fly shop (www.murraysflyshop.com). We fished the north fork of the Shenandoah river throwing leaches with a slow retrieve. I managed to land a 10-12″ smallmouth and John landed a solid 12″ fish. It was nice to get out and see that the fish were willing to play.
