Top condition

Small flies are a sound choice for fall fishing, but large ones can be surprisingly good.
Autumn is ideal for catching top condition fish, mornings, days and evenings. The fish are typically stuffed with the smallest animals, and small brown/gray flies are therefore best. If the fish do not react to these small flies a good wildcard can be to switch to a huge, colorful fly like a large Mickey Finn. You will occasionally run into large schools of fish, which you either see or notice by catching several trout in a row. Try to stay with them while they are moving.
Still, fish can be picky and difficult, but sport is even better than in the summer, and the beautiful, silvery, well conditioned fish offer the best food of all year. But note that all brownish colored fish should be released as they are on their spawning run.

Temperatures are dropping, and when the water is between 6-12 degrees Centigrade, fishing is at its best. Fish will go very close to the shore, and you should always fish before you wade. Fish can typically be everywhere, not only in fjords or places with good circulation, but also on open, sandy beaches because they are migrating towards the spawning streams or winter dwellings.
