As the weather begins to cool off there is one thing that begins to come to mind. No, not football, going back to school, or hunting. As the days get shorter and the weather begins to cool off it can mean only one thing in my world, fall trout fishing. In the fall of the year the rivers and lakes begin to become much less crowded that in the spring and summer, and many anglers begin to focus on other activities. All while trout fishing really starts to heat up.
If you consider yourself any kind of a “trout fisherman” there is probably no better time to go trout fishing than the fall of the year. Because the trout are feeding more heavily to “stock up” before the short, cold days of winter, the fall is an excellent time of the year to catch trout. As a matter of fact over the past twenty five years I have not only caught more trout during the fall of the year, but also more large trout as opposed to any other time of the year.
In this article I will outline 2 very effective rigs for catching trout in the fall. Truth be told, these rigs will work at any time of the year, but during the fall these rigs definitely need to be a part of your trout fishing arsenal.
- The Live Worm Rig – When engaging in fall trout fishing a very effective live bait is live worms and the best way to fish live worms for trout involves the use of a live worm rig. A live worm rig is the best way to use live worms as bait especially when fishing for trout in the flowing water that a river or stream provide. The biggest thing to remember with a live worm rig is to pinch the worm in half before baiting it onto the rig if large live worms such as night crawlers are being employed. When fishing for trout in the fall of the year in a river or stream, a live worm rig should be always used to rig your bait.
- The Fly Bubble Rig – This fall trout fishing rig is best employed in slow or non moving water, such as in a large pool on a river or in a lake. A fly bubble (or casting bubble as it is also known) is a way for spin fishermen to fish with artificial flies. Everyone knows how effective artificial flies can be as bait for trout fishing, but not everyone wants to learn how to “fly fish”. Well, with this unique trout fishing rig there is no need to learn to “fly fish”. With a fly bubble rig an artificial fly can be used as bait by spin fishermen, and when fishing for trout in the fall this rig is an excellent way to go.
As I said there is no better time of the year for trout fishing than the fall of the year, and the aforementioned fishing rigs need to be a part of your arsenal during your next fall trout fishing excursion.
