Top 5 Early Fall Trout Fishing Tips for Fly Fishermen

Based on my experience, fall is one of the best times to go fly fishing. This is especially the case if you have your sights set on brown trout. It is their spawning time. In addition, the water temperature is dropping. Thus, the brown trout are bound to be more feisty and hungry. Personally, I plan on trying to get outside to take advantage of those conditions this fall. If you do too, you may want to check out a few of my fishing tips. After all, maybe my fall fishing techniques will work for you as well. Here they are:

During the fall months, I have found that my shadow is apt to make the trout skittish. As such, I try to keep low to the water’s surface by kneeling down near vegetation, sandbars and other natural obstructions. I have also found that using stealthy wading techniques helps as well. I try to wade into the river without pushing a lot of water around. I also try and use a light step when walking on the river’s banks to avoid creating vibrations that may alert the trout to my presence.
