View Full Version : Early Nov fishing

09-27-2006, 10:58 PM
I am coming down to Townsend the last week of Oct-1st in Nov. What can I expect? I usually fish in the Spring or earlier Fall so this is new experience. What would be the best patterns to use? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Unless it gets really cold, the fishing should be excellent. I was still wading wet the second weekend in November last year. Same flies you use for early fall will still be working. Stimulators and other high floating dries and for nymphs, PT's and GRHE's, particularly in the smaller sizes. The fish won't be picky because they will be feeding heavily before winter hits.
