DRO Spokesman Walter Parrott has his clients displaying their trophy smallmouth for the camera. Warm temperatures and lack of rain have made the smallmouth bite as strong as ever. Walter has reported several fish being caught over 5 lbs on top water and various baitfish patterns.

Spring is finally here. After a long wet winter and battling cabin fever I decided to try out the French Broad to see what was going on. Over the last two weeks the bite has been slow with water temps steady in the mid 50′s. Fish are starting to get on the beds so look for everything to pick up over the next weeks as water temps begin to climb.
