Fly Fishing: The Fall Season

With each passing day, it becomes more evident that the fall fishing season is settling in. The four seasons that we have in Pennsylvania each have unique characteristics that differentiate themselves from one another.

Over the last week, several bugs that are common this time of year, such as:

  • Tan Caddis
  • Gray Caddis
  • Isonychia
  • Blue Winged

While hatches during the fall are not as major as the hatches during the spring, they do provide an opportunity to throw dry flies.

Just witnessing the fall foliage in Central Pennsylvania is worth making the trip, but the crisp air, cooler weather and happy trout are a few other reasons why the fall season is a special time of the year to fish. The beautiful colors of the leaves turning can only be rivaled by the vibrant colors on the fish as they get ready to spawn during the fall months.

The fall season is a great time of the year to take advantage of days spent on the water before the winter months.

If you are in need of a few days on the water this fall, talk to Joel and he can get you fixed up.
