Fall 
During fall, the fish will start to move towards the deeper parts of the river and lake. In order to catch these fish, you should use heavier flies that can sink quickly. Nymphing is a great fishing technique during this season because it targets these deep fish. Try using Woolly Buggers, Stoneflies, or other large flies.

Winter
In winter, the fish will move to even deeper water and can be caught using ice fishing techniques. When fishing in open water, use smaller flies that can imitate the baitfish that the fish are feeding on. In order for your fly to look more natural, try dying it with a food-based dye.

Spring 
In spring, the fish will start to move back to the shallower parts of the river and lake. In order to catch these fish, you should use smaller flies that can float on top of the water. Try using Adams, Elk Hair Caddisflies, or other small dry flies.

Summer
In summer, the fish will move to the edges of the river and lake. In order to catch these fish, you should use flies that imitate insects that are found near the water’s edge. Try using Poppers, Ants, or other small wet flies.
