    These Smallmouths are small but they sure make for a good fight....Ponderosa pine trees are the natural landscape surrounding Lake Siskiyou in northern California. It is a crystal clear lake and is the head waters for the Sacramento River, it is a beautiful place.....In the summer time there is some great smallmouth fishing their. For me I caught a lot of the small ones but no big ones using a #8 olive w. bug......

    55AECA4C-B7BE-4C9F-A924-CFA1DBA75504.jpeg One of my favorite places in the world. Bought my first fly rod at Ted Fay fly shop down the road in Dunsmuir and subsequently caught my first smallmouth on the fly at that lake. The whole river right there is just awesome too. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks....Because of the fires the air quality has been moderate to unhealthy all summer long, but the good thing is the fish don't care.....Looking forward to the end of the fire season
