- How’s Fishing?
As we transition into fall – which seems to be coming early this year – we typically see smaller and fewer fish. The hatchery has done an amazing job this year by supplying us with good sized fish to catch. The floods that happened earlier this season took a toll on all of the trout parks, but by banding together they made sure that our experiences this season surpassed our expectations.
This week promises to be much cooler. We will see more of the trees changing and leaves swirling around us as we cast across the stream. It’s such a beautiful time of year in the Ozarks. Imitating the different terrestrials that are falling into the water is a good way to catch a fish. The scuds, especially gray or salmon, fished deep is another. RGN’s have been exceptionally hot, also.
Hopefully you are able to take advantage of this great season.
