Fishing Conditions: Fall is here. We saw morning lows in the high 30s which made it take a while for the fish to wake up but once they did we were rewarded with fish. The right cast and right drift got a strike most times. Flows are coming into shape and the fish are getting comfortable in the slower edges. Fish deep in the morning and move up through the day. Abell was technical but with lots of rising fish we had a fun day.
