Even if you’ve been fishing for three hours and haven’t gotten anything except poison ivy and sunburn, you’re still better off than the worm.
The fishing may be winding down for the season, but don’t put your gear away just yet. The fall bite is on and it is not going away anytime soon. Fish seem to sense the turning of the seasons and right now they are on a feeding frenzy trying to load up on nutrition to carry them through the leaner winter months.
The fishing season on local streams and rivers closes Nov. 15, but the lakes should continue in high gear for a while longer. Lake Davis and Lake Almanor are attracting the most attention right now, especially with fly fishers.
