Inside Panel #3:
LATE SEASON: LATE SEPTEMBER, OCTOBER & EARLY NOVEMBER
If fortunate, the autumn angler experiences a glorious Indian Summer with only an occasional,
shot-lived thundershower. Crowds are gone, nights become brisk, and the aspens and alders turn golden. It is a special time of year. Stealth become a prime tactic.
Fall...Crowds are gone
Solitude is the rule at Milton. If action is slow. one can vacate the belly-boat and start prospecting for fall spawners leaving the lake and ascending the short stretch of the Yuba River's Middle Fork. The same regulations apply.
In October, the Truckee basin lakes will produce the largest trout of the season. The migrating
6-10 pound Browns are encountered in Stampede, Boca, and Prosser impoundments. Fly-rodders are starting to get their share.
