Default Where do you fish the most (Summer/Fall)

From July-October I am stuck to the smallest stream I can find with fish in them. Even if they don't have fish in them. You have to find out someway. Was just interested to see were everyone is during the "dry fly months".

I probably split my time 60/40 for big rivers to small streams.

Crowd avoidance is probably the driving force in my choice of venue. milt.

Default Re: Where do you fish the most (Summer/Fall)

I was going to bore everyone with a dissertation on my fishing spots by altitude throughout the year, then I fortunately re-read the question.

Between July and October, fishing below 7000 ft here in AZ is, well, uncomfortable is probably a slight understatement. So, I head for lakes and streams above 8000 ft. (White Mountains Apache Reservation) and as far away from pavement as possible. This allows me to fish without risking spontaneous human combustion. Scientific research has determined that this would be messy, and I would probably get a citation for littering.

Peace.

July thru Mid Sept., the gar really heat up on the Ohio River. Gar fight hard on a flyrod. It's a good idea to have a leather glove to protect your hand retrieving the fly. Streamers just below the surface or poppers are what I use. Nothing below a size 4 hook. You may want to incorporate a piece of panty hose or netting on these patterns to snag in their teeth.

Default Re: Where do you fish the most (Summer/Fall)

In the heat of the summer is when I fish for largemouth in local ponds and sometimes hit the salt for stripers at night
Toward the end of August the saltwater baits begin to school up attracking bluefish and hopeful the pelagics, bonito and little tunny (false albacore). So I try to fish inshore out of my kayak as much as possible that time of year.
A bluefish blitz is just about as exciting as fishing ever gets

Up is the answer in the Sierra. Looks like we'll have mid summer flows during normal high water times this year. Up time will come early and maybe the flipping skeeters won't eat us up this year.
