Bass Fishing Heats Up

As the water cools, many fish will be migrating to the deeper stream and river pools for the winter. As they move, they will be searching for some easy meals.

After the summer rains, the streams are typically lower and clearer, which can concentrate bass to the deeper areas. Use stealth to catch the elusive and skittish bass without warning the entire pool. Stay low, and when approaching a likely area, stay quiet.

During the fall, smallmouth bass is primarily feeding on crayfish. Using life-like crayfish imitation of soft plastics, crankbaits, or tube jigs can be the ticket to high catches.

The great advantage to stream fishing is the vast amount of publicly accessible streams that anglers can wade.

To find great fishing spots with or without a boat, check out the Where to Fish Finder. This shows the public access sites for Indiana's lakes and streams.
