What happens to the fish in late fall?

3 posts in this topic

I fish quite a bit in mid to small rivers (Rum Snake Kettle) most of the time I wade. My question is what happens to the fish as the water gets colder? I assume they find pools or lakes but is it useless to fish regular stretches of the river? Any ideas?

I was wondering the same thing... I fish the Rum whenever I can in the fall and I can never find a set pattern for where the fish locate as the water cools... my guess would be they settle into the deep holes, but dont they do that most of the year anyway??

most fish in river like these move shallower but you always need to find cover, when water gets colder the fish don't hold as tight to the cover, I went out on the snake today and got about about 6 northerns in about 2 hours, so you have to work for it

        So no help here it looks like. How did it end up going? Did you find a fix?. Suk's to be stranded.

      How's the snow on the lake?  Can you still get around on snowmobile or is the slush getting bad?  Thanks for any info.

      I don't have an axe to grind with The Landing (and I don't honk anyone on this forum does either)- I went there a few times last summer and the food was good, they had an ample beer selection, and the service was friendly- all of those things I'm willing to pay for.   We had another couple up staying the weekend at our cabin and brought them to The Landing and had a terrific time, looking forward to making it back there again!   And more importantly, can't wait for the ice to get off the lake!!
