Mossy Creek Fly Fishing Forecast 9/23/2022
Brian brings us the fishing forecast this week. He covers everything from the mountain streams, stocked waters, to the smallmouth and musky fishing. We are in the midst of a big seasonal change right now with our first big cold fronts pushing through. Smallmouth fishing will begin to slow down over the next few weeks and hopefully the cooler temps will revitalize our musky and trout fishing. We could use some quality rainfall here to really boost the flows in our favorite trout waters as many are running very thin at the moment. Tricos are still thick in the mornings on the spring creeks. Hoppers, crickets, and ants are still available to these fish in big numbers. Dry dropper rigs will be in play as water temps continue to drop and get cooler. Expect lows in the mid to low 40's over the next few nights with highs only getting back into the 70's a few days next week with most highs in the mid 60's. We should see water temps on our warmwater streams move from the low 70s and upper 60s into the low 60's or upper 50s by mid week next week. The bug bite for smallmouth will continue as long as the rivers stay low and clear but the window for good fishing will be smaller and smaller during the warmest parts of the afternoon hours. We will likely see more and more fish migrating to their winter ledge holes over the next few weeks as the days get shorter and the temps continue to drop.
