Mike, you need a road trip. Fall fishing should be good in Pennsylvania and Northern Virginia also.............

We have a fall stocking here in CT, mostly in lakes to prepare for ice fishing season but they also stock most of the more popular streams as well, pre Columbus day. Leaf peeping tourist time
Fall stocking has a second purpose and that's to clear out many of the raceways and tanks to make way for the next season's growing stock.
One local river is now teaming with small trout as the hatchery "dumps" much of their surplus there at this time every year.

Yeah Ohio will start stocking in October and then at an udisclosed date in November they drop the brood stock in. Then my TU Chapter stocks another creek with a fair ammount of obscenely large rainbows.

Mike, I know you have gear that will tolerate steelhead, get up to the Great Lakes and catch some shiny-skulls! The stockers will always be there, but those steelhead will give you a slightly more energetic fight than those stockers!
