Big rivers or small streams at dusk and dawn?


Recommended Posts

Trying to add to my general Smallmouth techniques and knowledge.


I live close to the DuPage west branch and to the Fox. There are going to be some days I will have time to hit both rivers.


My question is: Is it better to hit a small river like the Dup at low light levels and fish a bigger river like the Fox midday? Or the opposite?


My instinct says dup a low light, since it will be darker, fewer shadows, etc to spook the fish in the smaller body of water. But I thought I should defer to the experts.
