Autumn is the Best

I love autumn. The leaves change, the air gets cold, but the afternoon sun is still warm and inviting. As the water levels decrease the fish become aggressive and are on the watch for any bit of food that passes in the current. They need to fatten up before the weather changes.

I love wandering among the boulders, picking apart the pockets in the stream and probing them for resident trout. A blue sky enhances the beauty of the surroundings and the warm breeze makes it so refreshing.

Here are a few pictures from a recent trip I took into the mountains. Before you know it the snow will be flying and I'll have to leave this stream until June. Like elk and deer, the snow drives me down into the valley where things are little easier.

Get out there and enjoy autumn tenkara fishing. It's some of the best of the year!
