October 12th Fishing ReportShowers, mainly after 2pm. High near 53. Breezy, with an east wind 10 to 17 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New precipitation amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.
Today and through tomorrow we will have high winds and a chance of some much needed rain showers. While this will be excellent for the creeks, it will not be so favorable to anglers.
Today through Saturday the wind will be gusting from 30-40 miles per hour and rains from anywhere between 1/2 and inch today to 2 inches on Friday might fall. Not the best way to wrap up the last few days of season!
In high winds and cloud cover, leeches and streamers work well as you do not have to accurately cast to get fish to eat! If you find some shelter, subsurface fishing will be solid on scuds, pink squirrels and purple drank. This also holds true if the water muddies up on Friday and into Saturday. The above mentioned flies as well as squirmy wormies will catch fish in limited visibility water.
