FALL HIGHLIGHTS.  Red sunsets, pink horizons, yellow and orange leaves.  It’s tough to miss the colors of fall which are cropping up all around us.  We talk more about fall hunting seasons, forecasts for the rest of the year and where to find fish in today’s Three Things.

THREE THINGS.

SWAN SONG.  285 licenses remain in the tundra swan season for North Dakota.  Residents ($10) and non-residents ($30) can apply online at the NDG&F website.  The season runs from Sep. 30 – Dec. 31 and is a statewide hunting zone.

WARMER TRENDING.  The Climate Prediction Center shows a warm bias well into December for the upper Midwest, and below normal rainfall/snowfall with it.  Chances for an El Nino which was suggested for spring are now fading, as neutral conditions should persist into the first part of 2018.  But remember: never trust a forecast over three days.

THINK SHALLOW.  Fish like pike and trout, that don’t care much for warm water will start moving back into the shallows as autumn water temps begin to drop.  Look for them along fading weedlines or near shore where they’ll be feeding on the remnants of this summer’s crop of fish and insects.

 

Stay Sharp!
