Weeds die back with cooler weather, giving access to more water. Crowds are down at this time of year, and the rattlesnakes should head for their dens when the nights become consistently frosty.

Blue-winged olives will soon be staging large hatches, so carry size 18 patterns, such as CDC Baetis, Sparkle Duns, and Baetis Cripples. Size 18 Blood Midges, Serendipities, Hares Ears, and Pheasant Tails are good subsurface choices.

But above all, put a bunch of olive Scud patterns in your fly box.

Early in the month, you might encounter tricos and Callibaetis mayflies, and you might find some fish eager for ant and hopper patterns. As the weather cools, however, the midges and blue-winged olives will be dominant. With cooler weather, leech patterns can also be productive.
