What happens to the fish in late fall?

Recommended Posts

T-water

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??

Snake River  King

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

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?

      Ok..I got it wired directly to the motor battery. 12.44 bolts to the plug. Good. Unit powers on like normal. All is well until I get it on the water. Only question.. since there's power going non stop to that plug. Do I risk draining the battery? I take the unit off when I trailer the boat. 12.44 volts

      I'd be surprised if the lake is entirely open by Opener. I almost needed at auger extension eight days ago when I was up there.
