Autumn on the Columbia River is magical. The surrounding hillsides explode with fall colours and anglers enjoy warm summer-like days and non-stop dry-fly action throughout September.
September and October boast some of the season’s best fishing on Lower Arrow Lake and the Columbia River with wide open runs and almost no angler pressure. Fall is a season of plenty as anglers target the full spectrum of species including Gerrards and bull trout on Arrow and wild rainbows and walleye on the Columbia. These species feed heavily in preparation for winter and will hit a fly or attack a lure with reckless abandon.
