Many northern creeks have smallmouths, and plenty of southern creeks have spotted bass or largemouths. Sure, it's tight quarters, but drifting in a jon boat is a summertime blast. You get constant changes of scenery and there are new targets to throw at around every turn. For me, that alone keeps the excitement up no matter how much or little you’re catching. The next bend could hold the motherload! Bass love cooling currents in the summer, and spots or smallies ambushing behind a logjam can be some of the most aggressive you'll ever catch. If you’re planning a drift, keep an eye on flows. Raging is bad, but so is stagnant. I recommend taking a look at the terrain on Google Earth or by road prior to setting adrift. You surely don't want to get so far and have something blocking the creek.
