Creek fishing in Tennessee starts in mid-March, attracting smallmouth bass, catfish, blue gill, and shell crackers. Small creeks and rivers offer great opportunities for fishing, with wading upstream and using small top water lures. Live bait and crawfish are excellent choices for targeting river fish, with simple rigs and fast action rods.
Scott Lewis, a fisherman and biologist, shares his expertise in smallmouth bass fishing in Eastern Tennessee. He uses his snorkel to study local aquatic ecology and uses jigs to attract the elusive bass. Lewis also explains the effects of water levels on bass behavior and shares his angling techniques. He also reveals prime bass habitats and boat positioning secrets. Lewis's knowledge can elevate fishing skills and make each trip to the river a new adventure.
