Fly FIshing Tips for Late Fall

Posted by

There's a chill in the air. Winter is almost here. Don't put away the fly rod just yet though. Some of the best fly fishing, uncrowded water, hungry fish, and natural beauty happens to be found out on the rivers in the fall.

Look for tail waters with a water release from the bottom of the dam and you'll find water temperatures perfect for fishing. Scout your area for productive tail waters and check the regulations.

Go down in fly size as well. My favorite winter flies are ghost midges, RS2s, griffith's gnats, and other midges. 

I like to fish in the warmest parts of the day, both so I don't completely freeze and because midges will hatch and fish will feed better as the water warms. Make sure you go with good waders, layers underneath, good socks, and gloves. 

Give it a few casts, that first fish of the day always makes you forget about the shivers and makes you glad you're there.
