Fall Fishing Coming Soon
It’s August and in just a couple of short months we’ll be trading in the short sleeve shirts for hoodies and light jackets. Fall can be some of the best fishing all year. The weather is cooling off and bugs will continue to hatch.
Here are some tips on how you can make your fall fishing the best it can be.
1- Streamers. Start tying your favorite streamers. Browns will be aggressive this time of year pre-spawn. Some streamers we really like for fall are:
Matukas, Orange Blossom Special, Muddler Minnow, Clouser Minnow, Sex Dungeon and other various meat.
2- Dress appropriately. After fishing all summer it can be hard to pack something warm when out fishing in cooler weather. Once the sun goes down in the fall the temps can drop. Make sure you have something warm to make your fishing more comfortable.
3- During the spawn be careful of where you wade in the river. Stay far away from spawning beds. We need to make an effort to educate anglers on how to protect our resources. Don’t fish for spawning fish on beds.
4- Gloves. Make sure you bring along a pair of wool gloves. There’s nothing more annoying than having cold fingers when the fishing is good. Especially when stripping streamers your hands are going to be constantly wet from the fly line. Also, after releasing fish you will be wet and cold if you don’t have a good pair of gloves.
We hope these tips will help you this fall. Until then enjoy the last bit of summer while you can.
