Fishing for Smallmouth Bass in Rivers

Actually all species are welcome here as long as it swims in  a river.This August 2012 I've been hunting for Smallmouth Bass in a local River ,the Ramapo ,and want to learn more about this adversary in their River homes.Nothing wrong with catching any fish that swims while trying to capture the feistiest fish in the river .Besides Smallies the Ramapo has offered up small but beautiful Red Breasted Sunfish,Crappie ,Largemouth Bass, Rock Bass, Creek Chubs,Bluegill,Pumpkinseeds and Stocked Trout !Quite an assortment !   I hope those that enjoy the exercise and activity of walking the river banks and wading the water will share their joy and knowledge of fishing this way ! Leave no fishing line or garbage  behind to disgust thoughtful appreciators of the outdoors!

I live near an abandon gravel pit.  Some part of this thing is 60ft deep but about 2/3 of it less than 10-12 ft deep and it is full of small mouth bass.  None of any size but when I want to take a new guy fishing this where we go.  I have make a bug just for this pond and the smallies eat it up.  This thing is tyied on a #6 hook and I have know idea what to call it but it works. I will try to load a pix of this thing.
