Our season will usually start mid to late March. The best time for pre-spawn fish will be April through the first week of May, which is the absolute best time to catch a 5 pound + smallie.
After the spawn is over fishing will be excellent all through the summer up to the end of October. The best period for fly fishing will be early June through October. The New is without a doubt the finest river smallmouth fishery in the U.S. The number of fish found in the river and the high quality speak for itself. In addition to the excellent smallmouth fishing,the New is showing a big increase in the number of Native walleye,this is due primiarly to an aggressive reintroduction progran by our state dept of fish and game,these walleye are fast growers a fish can reach 18″ in two years currently an angler can keep two per day but they must be a minimun of 18″.
