Fall is here. Temperatures have finally started to moderate, and some of the year’s best fishing will be available without getting heat stroke.
And Bassmaster Elite Series pro and Sportsman TV host Greg Hackney said he launches his boat at Venice as often as possible.
“You’re getting in that time of year when the (Mississippi) river gets green,” Hackney said in a live Facebook feed from Venice Marina early this morning. “The trout start showing up in the Jump (and) they show up on the jetties in the main river.
“You can catch bass, white bass, redfish and trout — all on the same stuff.”
Of course, prime fishing is all about water clarity, and that’s dictated by the rise and fall of the river. A low river (generally below 4 feet at the New Orleans gauge) means water should be green and clear, while a higher reading hints at muddy conditions.
