Fall Fishing in Arkansas

By Seasons

Flathead fishing peaks in October and November when they go on feeding frenzies to fatten up for the winter. Striped bass fishing is great in September, when these fish chase the shade on the surface.

Early fall bass fishing cranks up as fish move from the cool deep water into shallow waters that lower in temperature with the onset of autumn.
