Late Fall Still Hanging On

The mornings this weekend were foggy and cold, but the sun burned through by mid-afternoon and the fishing was spectacular as the water temps stay in a fish-happy range. That might change this week, with snow and colder temps predicted to settle in. Will the cold kill off the fishing season? No, but it will change the tactics. Sure, it might send those post-spawn brown trout we saw this weekend in the side channels back to the main stem to dive down deep, but they will still be there and a big meal slowly rolled by their faces is hard to pass up. It is the time of year when hunting and steelhead are the focus for most of the usual river crowd, and that’s just fine by me.
