Smallmouth Bass

A good place to start looking for smallmouth bass is the southern shore of Toronto Reservoir. Try fishing with a bright colored spinnerbait fished up to 20 feet. Another good technique to use for smallmouth is fishing with a tube jig in a green pumpkin color. You may also have success fishing the shallow water at the north end of the lake near the boat ramp.
