Smallmouth Bass River Fishing Forecast Available From Biologists
Virginia has some of the premier smallmouth bass rivers in the country and things are looking up for 2008. VDGIF Fisheries Biologists are also continuing to lead the nation in research to learn more about how fish populations in these rivers work and how to better manage the fisheries to improve angling opportunity. Fisheries Biologist, Scott Smith, in south-central Virginia and the Chairman of the VDGIF Smallmouth Bass River Technical Committee, has worked with other river biologists around the state to come up with their latest forecast of what anglers will encounter as they hit the smallmouth bass rivers this year. Scott wants anglers to know that DGIF biologists are working hard on a number of issues facing smallmouth bass fisheries, like the fish kills on the Shenandoahs and Upper James, but overall anglers should see increasing numbers of smallmouth to pursue. Any smallmouth angler will want to check out the 2008 Smallmouth Bass River Fishing Forecast as they plan their river fishing outings:
