SAA Fishing Report 9-24-13

The rain received on Friday night and Saturday morning gave us a big jump in flows and kick started the steelhead fishing season.  All rivers in the Ohio Valley area got a good dose of the rain that was very much needed.  The fish responded well to the rain and a push of fish entered the stream systems.  

The name of the game during early season is watching the radar and figuring out which rivers are the best candidates for fishing based upon past experience and first hand knowledge.  Even if it is raining, the fish are already wet so get out there and give it a shot.  Rain often deters anglers from going fishing so you might just find yourself having most of the river to yourself.

As quickly as the rivers come up to fishable levels, they tend to fall just as fast.  Being able to get out and do some fishing during prime time is a small window of opportunity.  While most anglers don't have the luxury of fishing prime days often, being able to adjust to what mother nature gives you is critical.  Low and clear conditions are being seen once again out on a few of the streams.  Beads, streamers and small flies are great choices during the low and clear times.  

It won't be long and we will be into the October fall run of Steelhead Alley fishing.  Soon we will be firing on all cylinders.  Based upon the water temps and rain forecasts, we should be seeing some great action here in the near future.  Hot chrome chasing down your presentation.  Get out there and enjoy the great outdoors!

Until Next Time...
Fish Hard...Fish Often...
