October is the Perfect Time to Take Your Custom Fly Rod Out for Trout


Make sure your custom fly rod is ready to go, because October is here and this is the perfect month to go enjoy some trout fishing. The fish may not be as easy to catch as they are in the summer months, but this late-season month is a great time to catch some big trout. Often your favorite fishing spots have emptied out a little so you have more space to yourself, too. Here are our picks for the best October fishing spots: 

  • Madison River, Montana 
    This river will experience an early-fall level surge as water moves west. The fish here aren't stocked, so it is great if you are searching for a wild catch. Plus, it isn't overly fished so you should be able to enjoy plenty of river to yourself without anyone looking over your shoulder. 
  • Green River, Utah 
    Head to the area below Flaming Gorge Dam and you'll find fishing opportunities in October that run from good to great. Weather can vary greatly, though, so make sure you are prepared for anything while you fish for trout and enjoy the areas amazing fall colors. 
  • Great Smoky Mountains National Park, North Carolina and Tennessee 
    October is a busy time of year in the park, mostly because of people hoping to get a look at the incredible fall foliage. It's great for fly fishers, though, because the weather cools off but it still absolutely perfect for fishing. You may hear some elk bugling while you fish for trout, too. 

Any of these locations are a great fall getaway with your custom fly rod! Remember to place an order for all of the supplies you need for your next trip on our website, and we'll ship it to you right away!
