June Fishing Report

The smallmouth fishing around Asheville, North Carolina is excellent during the month of June. The best days have been when the water is low and clear, and the more challenging days have been when the rivers muddy up after a hard rain. We have been fishing the French Broad the most this summer because water conditions have been favorable. Whenever the French Broad is low and somewhat clear you need to be fishing it. The Nolichucky can be more difficult to navigate when water levels get low, but where there is a will there is a way. The topwater bite hasn’t been very good this year, but minnow patterns and crawfish patterns have been the ticket. Our biggest fish of the year so far came on a soft plastic in early June. July is definitely a good time to catch a bunch of fish. Most fish will range from 8-12 inches, but you hope to fool a bigger one 16+ inches. Here are some of our best smallmouth catches from June 2021
