Trout will migrate to the shallows as the weather cools. Before the really cold weather hits, you might pick up fish on ants and hoppers near the shore. Damselfly and dragonfly nymphs may also effective. October caddis may be blown onto the water, and a big Stimulator skated across the surface could generate a strike. Midges and caddis can be effective when the wind is calm. Scuds and leeches are other options. Brown trout will be active, and a streamer pattern can work well in the fall. By the end of October this can be a windy, bitterly cold place that will make you dream about a trip to the Bahamas.
