“There’s a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore like an idiot.”
The key for successful fishing right now is finding cold water. It is going to stay that way for the next several weeks until we see some fall weather.
That means fishing deep. For shore anglers working the lakes that means fishing nears springs and creek mouths. Tributary mouths are also key for finding fish in our local rivers.
High elevation lakes and streams are another great option as the weather and water warms. Echo, Silver and Caribou are great options north of Chester. To the south, Lakes Basin offers a number of absolutely beautiful lakes. Some can be reached by vehicle, others require a short or moderate hike.
