With September here and many hunting seasons only weeks away, fewer and fewer anglers will be out wetting their line. While focus is building on all of the hunting opportunities about to take place, it’s no wonder that so few anglers take advantage of angling opportunities during September and October. Their loss however can be your gain.
I admit I too also tend to forget about autumn fishing, but the truth be told, I have often caught my biggest and best catches during September and October. Those catches include bass, trout and catfish — all of which seem to respond to the cooling temperatures with a need to feed heavily, possibly in preparation for winter’s cold.
