Default Best Month for Trout

I just got back from 4 beautiful days on the Colorado River just south of Rocky Mountain National Park and had a great time, caught a lot of really nice fish.

Now I am planning a trip with some frinds to go down to the Lower Mountain Fork this fall, but had a few questions. Between September, October, November, which would be the best month to go? Is there a certian time that the trout are spawning? Is there a certain time where the water cools back down from the summer and the fish are more active? i took a look at the stocking schedule and it looked like they put in more trout pretty regulalry.

Also, i read that many of the fish are fed on pellets as they are grown, before they are put into the river, does that mean that traditional nymph fishing is no good on this river? Any advice would be much appreciated. I need to learn from the local fisherman's wisdom for this area. Thanks everyone.
