The Best Fall Fly Fishing Destinations and Trips

Posted by yellowdog on Aug 13, 2018 12:04:29 PM

Even as we write this article the sun is beginning to set noticeably earlier each day. The mornings, even though still warm, are slowly starting to take on the distant hints of fall. Sunshine breaks the late summer dawn with the crimson glows that suggest elk hunting is right around the corner. Clothes that have been stowed away since last bird season are being unpacked and dogs are starting to excite with the not too far-off retrieves. Fall also means fly fishing during, arguably, the best time of the year. As summer crowds return to careers and lives off the water, rivers are offered a bit of respite from the high-season traffic. And for anglers, the possibility of world-class rivers to themselves is enough to get anyone out of bed on a cold autumn morning. If you’re like us and enjoy brisk fall days on the river then you definitely want to check out the following destinations for your fall fly fishing adventure. Please note that this list is not exhaustive and of course there are some rivers missing. We’ll leave those up to you to discover!
