Fishing tips for September
Hannah Myers of Headwaters Outfitters says, “Fall will be here before we know it, then creeps in winter midge fishing. Take advantage of the next few warm weeks we have, continue fishing terrestrials! Beetles, ants, crickets and grasshoppers will still be out and about during the next few weeks; enjoy them while they last. The inchworm bite has still been strong here in WNC as well, keep a few in your box to use as a dry-dropper rig!”
