Fall Fishing (one last question)......

4 posts in this topic

Will the cooling water temps make the fall bite any earlier this year? Any opinions would be greatly appreciated. I have been reading on different resorts websites that the water temps have started to cool a lot & that the fish have started migrating to the gaps.

Thanks again!

I heard on KQ92 NorthCountry outdoors the other morning that they have been seeing a few scattered shiners in the river and it wont be long. Summer is about over. Wouldnt know it by the temps today, in the 80`s but there have been some cool nights. They also said that the fish are transitioning from the reefs to the points up around the angle.

A bit of patience will go along way. The fall fishing

is such a draw we try to make it happen sooner than it

will.

Fishing will stay pretty good in the lake and the fish

start to move a bit shallower and more fish will stage

off of Pine Island. But it's late Sept and into Oct

before this "fall bite" thing really gets going.

Try making plans to fish later rather than earlier.

Late October and thru November is when it is really

good. And you wont show up 3 weeks before the fish.

See you all up there

We usually go the opening of Deer season. Not the crowds the two weeks before and the fishing is GREAT then... Kaz

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
