If you are like me, you cannot wait to get out on the river to catch a few smallmouth bass. Winter bass fishing in the months of January and February are usually impossible to get out on the Susquehanna River, mainly because of ice. There are some years, however, when the weather is unreasonably warm and the river is fishable, but as of lately not many.
Fishing for smallmouth bass on the St. Lawrence River tops the fishing bucket list for many bass fishing anglers. The attraction of trophy smallies and the thrill of big river fishing both provide an unforgettable experience.
I have been to the Clayton and Alexandria Bay areas in New York many times, but never fished the St. Lawrence River. Like many anglers, fishing for smallmouths on the St. Lawrence River has been something that I wanted to do for some time. Up until now I have only heard and read about the 5- to 6-pound smallmouth bass that were being caught on this great fishery. Enough waiting, I finally made the decision to head north and book a guided smallmouth bass fishing trip.
Labor Day marks the unofficial end of summer but the start of some great fishing opportunities. Fishing Labor Day weekend and beyond has some great benefits. Fall is a perfect time to hit the water in search of all different kinds of species. As the weather cools down the waters, fishing action across Pennsylvania intensifies. Almost every Pennsylvania fishing hotspot will be less crowded, have better fishing and possibly even be stocked with trout again!
