September is here and unfortunately its the last month for topwater action for smallmouth. Summer cicadas will start to die off along with other insects as nights get cooler. So far not showing any chance of cooling off yet. The hot weather has returned and looks to stay awhile longer which will prolong popper fishing! Thunderstorms have kept things interesting with isolated flash floods. With the wet season we have had water levels are great for the rest of this month and Fall. I only have three dates left for this month if your interested in a guided trip for freshwaters hardest pulling fish pound for pound. September 25, 26, and 28th.
With Fall approaching their is still hope to catch smallmouth bass. The streamer bite will turn on as the cool air brings water temps down in October. The bass know its time to put the feed bag on before it gets real cold. I have a very busy schedule in October with hosted trips to Brazil and Belize but I do have openings mid month to get out after smallmouth or trout. I plan to guide for smallmouth much longer than in years past, especially if we have a warm Fall.
I will start to run musky trips once weather cools down. It looks like a much better Fall than last years very dry Fall. If we can keep some water in the river and the water isn’t crystal clear it’ll be a good Fall for those bleeping muskies.
Hope to see you on the water!
