If you Can Hook a Couple a Day, You’re Doing Pretty Good

Smith River

by Kenny Priest

The last few days, fishing has been tough on the Smith reports Mike Coopman of Mike Coopman’s Guide Service.  He said, “If you can hook a couple a day, you’re doing pretty good.  Conditions are tough right now, with low and clear water.  There are some nice fish around, and quite a few smaller two-year-olds.  We’re still seeing mostly fresh fish push through, the downers are likely waiting for the next big storm.”
