Fall is often considered to be the forgotten season for fly fishing. It is the time of year that most people put their fishing gear away, and put their orange on to head out into the woods and go hunting. This is a mistake because fall fly fishing in Rocky National Park is absolutely wonderful. This is the season when trout start to spawn, and therefore they are more active and agitated than they usually are. Although they are more active, there is still one change that you will need to make in order to have a successful fly fishing experience in the fall –you need a new fly pattern!
Go Dark For Fall
The fall is the perfect time of year to pick a new, darker fly. That is because, in the fall, the sky is often overcast and the water can be murky due to heavy rain. This will cause the fish have a hard time seeing a lighter colored bait or lure. Red, gold, or darker colored lures are a whole lot easier for the fish to see in water that isn’t so clear. Another great option is a glow-in-the-dark lure. Changing your fly is an easy change that can lead to some pretty fantastic results.
