  1. Greetings and Cheers . Yes yes yes the transition from the God awefull heat and crowded streams to the more mild temperatures and fewer crowds of September. My favorite time of year to be on the stream. Soon brisk mornings the October caddis and streamers . The forrest becomes magnificent with color and the stream temperatures cooling down making it safer to play the fish . listen in the distance the bugle of the bull elk . Even the ride home seems to be a little better. Food taste better in fall . Especially them big juicy burgers ..then the crackle of the woodstove. Best time of year by far .
