Two things happen during this month which tend to bode well for great sport.

The first is that the wind tends to cool the water. Longer nights increase the effect and trout become much less lethargic as a consequence.

The other is that the fish seem to sense the winter drawing in, and decide to feed like hell in order to pack weight on for the lean cold months.

There are bound to be really marvellously conditioned fish around and these are the fish to aim for. The other influence that the coming September has, is the bringing of the larger fish closer to the surface.

It is often a toss up between bank fishing and boat fishing. The fish tend to be pretty close up the bank, but the lack of bank anglers tend to make drifting the shallows a distinct possibility.
