Too Late?

2 posts in this topic

When would be the best time to fish the mouth of the river. Thinking about the 2nd weekend in Oct. Would that be to late/early? Havn't fished the fall bite but from what I hear when the shiners are in the river the bit really slows in the bay. Any info would be appreciated thanks.

No two years are the same, however as a general rule the good bite lasts right to freeze up. Heavy rainfalls will cause increased turbidity which will shut down the bite. This especially true further up river, Clementson, Frontier, Birchdale etc. Your mid month dates should give you good fishing. Good luck. Ol Sneller

      Very weird. Those little worms in the garden do catch more than little 2-4 sunfish.

      Strange indeed... Try looking for much more slack water compared to the beech you were yesterday and today. The West side of the dam was on fire this afternoon; a friend and I were in the double digits within an hour.
