Tip 1: Look for a spot with direct sun exposure: Look for a spot with direct sun exposure As water temperatures drop, fish are most active during the warmest time of day, usually between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. With above average temperatures predicted well into December, fish feeding will also continue to be more active leading into the winter months. Fall weather also means lower water flow, allowing sunny areas to stay warmer for longer.
Tip #2: The less traffic, the better the fishing Fall also brings less boating traffic on the water, which allows the fish to feed more consistently throughout the day. Fall also means there’s less foot traffic and visitors in many fishing spots, giving you the chance to find just the right spot without the crowds typically found during the summer months.
Tip #3: Ask the Experts! Wondering what the best spots to fish are? Well you can always check out Hot Spots page, or go straight to the source and give your local state parks or fishing area a call. When we reached out to Arkansas Headwater Recreational Area, for example, we discovered that Bighorn Sheep Canyon and Browns Canyon is seeing great fishing as the weather starts to cool down. And at current water flows, the north and east shore of the river can be accessed in most places by wading as well.
Looks like it’s time to put out your Gone Fishin’ sign, grab your gear, and get fishing!
