White River, Indiana Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
Our smallmouth season is here! Hit the banks and look for structure, the smallmouth are feeding aggressively! We like a deer hair diver, Sneaky Pete or Todd's Wiggle Minnow. Conrad's wounded minnow is another great option if you want to fish a streamer!

White River Description

The White river has its ups and downs over the last decade. But over the last few years the river has really turned around and has become a fantasic small mouth bass and carp fishery. While most SMB will be in the 14-16" range you do have shots at lunkers pushing over 20". The Carp fishing can be great, sight fishing to the golden ghosts is great on this river and can be very productive. The river is also wide ...

Techniques & Tips

Fish top water patterns, poppers, etc. for the visual strike. The bass will also hammer streamers, the choice is yours!

7-Day Forecast

Summer is here and our daytime temperatures will be warm! Looks like we'll be in the mid 80's for most of the week; only chances for rain are on Wednesday. Go Fish!
