Heaven In October, They call It Margaree
There is one very important factor that must be in play to make the circle complete. A flush of water.
Some Margaree veterans say that you should wait as late as possible in October. This year I am pushing the time back three days. I have but four days to fish and want to make the best of the timing. Most years you have a choice. The second week of October will afford decent weather, sometimes down right perfect but there is a strong possibility that the fish don't show. The third week the fish seem to like but the weather can snap to a winter feel over night. I have experienced warm sun and light winds as well as snow flying sideways and the worst of conditions. A fire and hot soup is advised.
I am giving this information and advise because I have never felt crowded on the Margaree. Some of the pools can get a bit tight but there are so many places that can hold fish it is hard to cover but a few over a weeks trip. The mix of people are the best you will find anywhere. Please send me an e-mail should you desire any further information. I think about the Margaree for the full twelve months waiting for the next trip. I call it "Heaven In October"
