Spring River guide Mark Crawford is excited about the smallmouth bass action that's going on on the Spring. Mark guided Chuck Lajeunesse to a nice smallie this past week. The Spring is almost at its average flow. He says, “The smallies are biting but they have been down deep in the deeper pools. Gotta work the bottom slow with a sink tip or heavy fly. Gonna hang up a lot, so bring plenty of flies. The winter time can be the best time to catch a big smallie.”
