It’s the end of September and finally the long summer heat wave has given way to the start of some cool fall-like temperatures. With the start of October only days away, experienced anglers are filled with anticipation the same as if it were the night before Christmas. October and November are two of the best months for fishing in northwest Pennsylvania for a number of species. Steelhead are head-ing up the Lake Erie tributaries, smallmouth bass on Lake Erie, Pymatuning, Shenango Lake, French Creek and Allegheny River are primed to put on the feedbag. Crappies and white bass will be chowing, along with wall-eyes. Pike and musky put on a show in the fall. And November is usually the month when I catch my biggest largemouth bass of the year. Now is not the time to hang up the rod. GO FISH!
