Although trout fishing is the most popular for fall anglers, many other species can be taken successfully when the leaves begin to fall.
Bass, musky and walleye are all species anglers should take a look at chasing during the latter months of the year.
Bass fishing during the fall is a great time for anglers to take advantage of less crowded waters.
Musky fishing, meanwhile, tends to pick up in October and November in both stream and reservoirs.
Walleye fishing becomes more active around December. Most of the bigger walleyes landed each year come in the month of December.
Fall trout stocking will get under way in October.
A carry-over of trout stocked this past spring should also result in some good fall and winter fishing opportunities.
Anglers can visit the Web site at www.wvdnr.gov to find out which streams have been stocked each day.
Many outdoor enthusiasts will take advantage of the opportunity to enjoy a day of hunting and fishing during the fall stocking season.
