Smallmouth Bass fishing on the Delaware

Smallmouth Bass

Smallmouth bass are the most dominant fish on the Delaware River. It's not unusual for anglers to catch more than 20-30 per day. I prefer to fish the weed beds near rocky structures in about 4-5 feet of water. Other great places to find them are deep holes near eddies, or at the end of a large pool. The largest fish are in deeper water usually near or on some kind of structure. For large fish, I fish in about 8-10 feet of water on and around logs of structure with a black 3" Mister Twister. In the summer months, top water fishing is best. Small top water lures and plugs chugged around the weed beds often result in success, I find.
