I hope you've all been able to take some time this fall to get out there & wet a line. It's my favorite time of year for fly fishing. Both trout & bass are becoming more active as the water temps come back down & there are more insects on the water again.
Unlike the spring, there are usually much fewer anglers on the stream at this time of year. You can have more room to enjoy the surroundings & quiet solitude. The fishing is a little less action-packed & moves at a slightly slower pace but that's okay. With the leaves changing color, & the trout decked out in their fall colors, everything is just so much more vivid.
Locally here in Western PA, fishing conditions have been tough, as the water levels have been way down. Now, I don't mean to brag, but even under these difficult conditions I've still been able to land some of the bigger fish in the stream....and yes, I released this beast back into the wild. I know, you're a little jealous, but that's okay, haha!!
I hope you've all been enjoying the fall season, the fly fishing, & all the things that come with it.
