With the cooler temperatures becoming the norm, it appear that fall is arriving early and now is the time to head out to your favorite fishing hole and with a little luck hook in to a monster. Fall is one of the best times of the year to get out on the water as the fish fatten up for winter.  But where are the fish biting?  Should I head to the lake or hit the river?  What should I use to land a most fish?  Let's take a look and see...

Whether your passion is angling with a traditional spin casting rod and reel or if you prefer the timeless beauty and precision of fly fishing there is lots of great fishing to be had on the waters right here in our own back yard.
