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

      With only like 2 weeks to ago who chomping at the bit to sit in the blind. I woke up this morning to vivid dream of two double gobbling toms working into my spread. In my dream my nephew got trigger finger and blasted my hen decoy.

       It looks like a great ride. Looks a lot more stable than a kayak is well. If you headed over to Little Elk Lake and you should find the gills and crappies in the boat channels.

        Check out my ride for the early season back water.  Took it out Saturday for a spin and a few casts.  Need some warmer Temps and the sheet of ice to move were I intended to go.

      Made it out yesterday am, still found 18" of good clear ice here. A little slick out there, 1 needs to be careful. Got 1 right away, nothin after.
