Towns to consider for a Fall Fishing Getaway

A fall fishing getaway is a great way to relax and reconnect with nature. After all, any day fishing sure beats a day working. If you are considering an autumn getaway this year, choose the right location and jump in the car or catch a plane before it is too late.

With over 300 sunny days each year, Glenwood Spring, Colorado, makes the perfect getaway location. The freestone Eagle River which flows offers outstanding wading fishing for wild brown and rainbow trout while the Colorado River offers outstanding floating trips. Do not get in such a hurry to leave that you forget to pack your large minnow bait and your Yellow Bird planer board.

It is not hard to bring home your limit in Mountain Home, Arkansas. Fishing is great on Norfolk Lake and Bull Shoals Lake for largemouth bass, striped bass, and walleye. Meanwhile, the North Fork River offers outstanding fly fishing for brown trout. Do not leave home without a Doctor Spoon from Yellow Bird.

It is easy to see when you visit Minocqua, Wisconsin, why everyone that lives here loves to fish. There are 68 lakes within a short distance of the city and 49 of them offer public access. October is a great time to catch a variety of fish in these locations including musky, pike, crappy and bass. Before you leave home, make sure to grab the Doctor Spoon as customers have caught Northern Pikes weighing more than 40 pounds using them.

It is easy to see why so many anglers retire to Apalachicola, Florida. While the pompano run is still a few days away, just offshore anglers are catching grouper, snapper, and king mackerel. In Saint Joe Bay, fishing has been outstanding for redfish, speckled trout, flounder and black drum on top water and skinny water lures.

Lake O’ The Pines near Mimms, Texas, is seeing outstanding fall fishing for bass. This lake was once a championship bass lake, but it became overfished. Now, it is back to its prime offering anglers plenty of opportunities. Anglers are also catching flathead and blue catfish, crappie, and catfish on jigheads.

Fall is the perfect time of year for a getaway. These towns offer excellent fishing opportunities. Many species of fish are into their secondary spawn period. In almost all locations, food is plentiful, so fish are out looking to grab a meal. The cooler temperatures also mean that some species are moving to their winter spots making them easier to catch. Get out on the water today and enjoy your fishing.
