Not many fishing reports are coming out of the Smith, most anglers have moved on for the season. The river is in great shape after hitting nearly 14 feet at the Jed gauge on Tuesday afternoon. Flows were right around 11-feet on Wednesday and conditions should remain excellent through the week. These high flows should put the downers on the move and the fishing could be good. The Smith will remain open to fishing through April.
