TRANSITIONS. We are in transition from Summer to Fall fishing and it's one of our favorite times to be on the water. Classic summer approaches will still prove effective, namely the hopper-dropper rig, but we're on the verge of a little bit of a shift into productive early fall fishing.
Tricos are still present, but will soon be making way for blue-winged olives on both freestones and tailwaters, alike. While many of us around the shop believe that streamer season is year-round, there's no denying that early fall is a great time to throw big, meaty offerings to pre-spawn brown trout and hungry rainbows looking to put on a couple of pounds before the cooler water temps of winter slow their roll a little bit. This water year has proven to be super productive and we expect really, really, really good fall fishing with healthy water levels throughout the state.
