Fishing Trips

Fall Fishing at Doe Run

Fish are starting to put weight on for the cold months ahead. Fall fishing can be some of the best of the year. I fished Doe Run Lake last week and caught some big bass.

The bass were suspended in large fallen trees. The trees that extended the furthest into the water were the most productive. I used a Live Target Frog to catch most of the fish. I tried other top water baits, but the lake had too many floating leaves and twigs that other baits got hung up on. The frog came through this floating debris nicely.

It was a gorgeous fall day to spend some time in the kayak. This is a great time of year to get out on the water. The leaves are changing colors and the fish are biting.

I ended up catching eight largemouth bass, and a couple bluegill on a hair jig.  I plan on revisiting Doe Run in a few weeks.  The fishing is expected to only get better.

Check out my other visit to Doe Run earlier this summer here.
