Fishing Report: October 5, 2010

I haven’t updated my fishing report since Sept 11 as conditions remained consistent throughout September. As we enter October temperatures are cooling and water levels have dropped off a bit. The major hatches now should be the Mahoganies and BWO’s primarily in the afternoon. Cloudy days produce much better than days of bright sun. Tricos are still out in the mornings but will begin to taper off as we move into October. Believe it or not grasshoppers are still abundant and will produce good fish when no mayflies are on the water. Grasshoppers should produce until we get a hard freeze that finishes them off. Nymph droppers and streamers are also producing some nice fish when there is no top water action. Fall is a great time to be on the river. See ya on the water!
