SY on 6/2
Jun 5th, 2006, 6:31am
Went out to the river about 8 am.  Noticed a pretty large drop in the amount of water in the river and the temps were up as well.  Fishing not as good as previous week, a lot of bobbers and trash in the water indicating a lot of people were there over the holiday.  Went further downstream than usual from the first crossing, sight-casted to fish in a large still pool, got one trout and one smallmouth.  Lot of smallmouth in the pool, mostly 6 inches but a few approaching 10 inches.
My question is, are the smallmouth planted or are they native?  With the warmth of the water in these pools, I'm suprised they were there and that they can survive a full summer.  Could they have made it all the way up from the lake?

Thanks for the report Jeff  Smiley
The smallmouth are not native but are wild, that is they are a naturally sustained population. You can find them in pools (that aren't filled with people) throughout the year. Hiking to get away from the summer crowds of litterers is necessary.
