Fall Fishing in Arkansas

By Seasons

Early Fall Bass Fishing in scenic Arkansas Enjoy casual float fishing and gorgeous fall color.

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. While it's the same move they make in the spring to spawn, in the fall bass are in search of food. November is a great time to float on the upper Ouachita River and cast for blue ribbon smallmouths.
