LOUISIANA: Fish to 40 pounds moving through coastal passes to spawning grounds with FG particularly in the Grand Isle area where anglers are tying into exceptional run; OVG.
NORTH CAROLINA: Surf between Nags Head and Hatteras Inlet ideal with casters reporting an abundance of hefty fish. Hatteras Inlet charter boats also connecting as last week one boated 11 bass which topped 40 pounds each; OVG.
WISCONSIN: In spite of or because of splendiferous autumn with temperature in 80s, few anglers are whacking lakes and flowages, but those that are report FF/G, as Arthur R. Ergeson of Milwaukee last week pridefully displayed a 35-pounder he hoisted from north Twin Lake last week; OG.
MONTANA: Fat natives snatching streamers and FG in Yellowstone, Big Hole and Georgetown and Canyon Ferry lakes; state-wide OVG.
CALIFORNIA: Thunder showers and snow in high country slowing down Sierra fishing especially in Bridgeport area and on Owens River from Benton Crossing to Arcularius Ranch. OG on Hot Creek for big browns. Bushy creeks south of Bishop producing on bait. West slope hot spots still upper Kern and Kaweah as well as remote creeks in Yosemite National Park; OG.
WISCONSIN: Brule L and C but diehards averaging two sleolhead and brownies per man ranging from 3 to 6 ½ pounds. Fall rainbow run not up to par and grizzled oldtimer reports fishing is horrible and OP.
