New York Fly Fishing

In the months of October, November, and December New York is home to some of the best fly fishing in the nation. With strong runs of steelhead and lake run brown trout, Western New York is in the thick of the action. Starting in the middle of September, chrome steelhead begin invading local rivers and streams. These fish fresh from the lake are aggressive and eagerly eat the well presented streamer.

With each weather system that moves through the area, fresh run steelhead and browns pile into streams and rivers of all shapes and sizes in Western New York. Even creeks that generally flow little more than a trickle can see fish stacked up in the deeper pools when the fall rains come. These smaller creeks provide hot action when the bigger watersheds become to high and colored up to fish, meaning that regardless of weather there is almost always good fishing to be had!

Fall Lake Run Brown Trout

At Fish Lake Run Outfitters, we target steelhead and brown trout in Western New York from October through ice up. Fishing in Western New York in the fall is a beautiful thing. Early on the trees are ablaze with yellows, oranges, and reds. By late fall, the snow begins to fall, and the ice begins to form. But not to worry, fishing remains red hot until the rivers and streams freeze up. This generally occurs around Christmas.
