River Run Smallies
What rivers lack in width, they most certainly make up for in the amount of water that passes through them.
And they have a vast carrying capacity as home to a wide variety of fish species – panfish, walleyes, saugers, white bass, pike, musky, sturgeon — the list goes on.

Yes, rivers and smallies are the perfect combination because it seems like no matter the conditions, you can always find some productive water to fish on a river.
