October Fishing
MR


Yes, fall has made its appearance. And fishing has been quite good.  D. Boies (pictured above with guide Steve L) makes an annual event of hitting the rivers around here come October.  Seems she has a way of bringing out the big ones.  Actually, more than just a few.... And she comes prepared.  Our weather has certainly changed just as the color of the leaves on the trees.  Colder, cloudier, wetter too.  Don't make a trip out now without throwing in multiple next to skin layers as well as the technical outerwear that can withstand a day long dunking.  Not that it's going to happen, but more likely the fact that frankly, your're screwed if you don't.  Telling the guide through chattering teeth that you absolutely have to go in because you didn't pack the right stuff just when the full blown baetis hatch comes off and all the fish in the river are up feeding is not going to be a pretty sight!  Plan accordingly.  Yes, you can indeed see some pretty wicked nasty weather, in doses, and you had better be prepared for it.  Those of us who live here or fish here actively have been waiting all year for this!  Just saying--- the right clothes can make as much a difference now through the end of the season as the right guide.....
