I think this is my favorite time of year! Days and nights are cooler which means the water cools and the fall trout and salmon start running up the rivers to spawn. There’s crispness to the air and along with the leaves the trout and salmon start to change color and this is when they are the prettiest.
I can still get them to come to a caddis dry but as we get deeper into fall, I turn to streamers and nymphs. We don’t have many days left before we are tying flies and watching snowflakes falls, so get out there!
