Fall Fishing for Big Trout

By August 13, 2014 No Comments

Blog 2 Fish move into shallower water along shorelines looking for grasshoppers, ants, and other terrestrials to fall into the water.  Big fish are looking for a big meal to sustain them through the winter and hopper patterns drifted along undercut banks, log jams, and in back eddies get smashed by big, hungry trout.  In stillwaters trout cruise shorelines and weedbeds in shallow bays looking for an easy meal and leading these cruising trout with a hopper, ant, or beetle pattern will often trigger these fish to strike.  Fishing these big dry flies in sizes 6 to 12 will produce veracious strikes from big fish and may be the most enjoyable fishing you have all year.

Big streamers trigger these aggressive spawning fish to strike and fall can be some of the best streamer fishing of the year.  Tiger trout get active as the weather cools and October and November are two of the best months of the year to catch a large tiger trout.  Streamers, woolly buggers, and leeches are all effective patterns for targeting large tiger trout in the fall.
