Season's Fishing

Steven Kriete

For many fish species, it pays to fish for them by the season.  In looking at Lake Lure and the lakes and streams of the Southeast, certain species are much easier to catch at certain times.  Target them accordingly, and you'll catch more fish.  Here are the typical seasons for many freshwater species in the mountains of North Carolina and Georgia based on my experiences and fishing habits.

 

 This brown trout was one of 70 (not a typo) that my buddy and I caught fishing the mountain streams.  May and June are excellent times for these fish, but July and August can be very difficult except for low light hours.  Another season is November in streams feeding into lakes as these fish enter them for their spawns.
