We're midway through September but it sure hasn't felt like it yet. It's been pretty warm and nice and not too fall-like, but that's ok, we'll take it. Water temps are still hanging in the lower 60s in most places. Coho Salmon are being caught, over deeper water 20-30 feet down. Flickr Shads have been best. There are for sure fish being caught in the near shore areas too, it's just that they're pretty spread out. There are fish in the rivers as well, so don't over look that option either. On the Brule, there's already been a nice push of early fall Steelhead and a number of Cohos over there too. That fishing will only get better.
Smallmouth have been pretty spread out lately, and are still in a late summer pattern. Major schooling hasn't yet to have seemed to happen. Keep moving to find active fish and stay on the bite.
Musky fishing has been pretty decent lately as well. Fall is the time to get after these toothy critters in our many area inland lakes and rivers.
Stop by the shop to see what we've got to help you get out this fall.
