What I consider musky season has begun. Leaves are changing and water temps are cooler. After a two week break from the river because of rain and high flows a friend and I made it out to start off Fall right. Smallmouth bass were very active chasing minnows all over the river and I was glad we had a fly rod rigged for them. After sticking a few good smallies on streamers we switched to musky rods because that was the soul purpose of our trip, even though it was hard to quit fishing for smallmouth. Musky were active for about a two hour window before the sun got over head. We hooked three muskies and landed two of them, so not a bad start to the season.
