September is month of transition. With water temps beginning to drop, fish are making some adjustments in location and prey sources. As water temps continue to drop, we anticipate most warm/coolwater species (bass, walleyes, crappies, perch, pike, musky) to feed more with each species having its own temperature niche of most aggressive activity. On Lake Erie, steelheads are starting their fall run to the tributary creeks, while the major GL walleye schools in PA waters for the summer are now heading west. There is a lot happening right now and it changes day to day. Be sure to check out Bassmaster Elite Pro Dave Lefebre tips for September bass fishing. This week the hottest bites are smallmouth bass on the Allegheny, plus walleyes and perch on Lake Erie. The steelhead run is starting, and big white bass are feeding on Shenango Lake. Don’t overlook flatheads!
