Wildwood Outfitters Blog and Fishing Report
Protecting wild trout is of the utmost importance to us, so by mid-October we shut down our trips for this species and allow the brookies and browns to do their thing undisturbed. If the conditions allow for it, late September and early October can offer up some outstanding fishing, and this year is no exception to that! We've been catching fish on a variety of patterns, both on the surface and using nymph rigs. Some of it depends on the specific day and what bugs are hatching, but the insects are definitely starting to pick up again. There's been a nice mix of caddis, BWO's, and even some terrestrial action to excite our anglers in between strikes on subsurface flies.
Our caught fish are coming from a variety of water types, but most have come from the deeper pools that fish hung out in during the summer months. On days right after a rain, the fish are moving into the faster water to feed on hatching bugs, but once the flows drop back down those spots become trickier to target. Watching for feeding fish can greatly help you zero in on where the trout are and where you should cast!
