 Even though summer is over and the school year is kicking off, fall is still a great time for open water fishing.  As the water slowly cools, fish will be looking to feed prior to the colder months ahead.  Fisheries surveys conducted on seven West Metro (Hennepin, Carver, & Scott Counties) FiN lakes have been completed this sampling season and have yielded some good suggestions of where to wet a line.  Try POWDERHORN (Minneapolis) for quality-sized BLUEGILL SUNFISH & CHANNEL CATFISH.  MCCOLL (Savage) POND revealed ample medium to large BLACK CRAPPIE, and MILL POND (Jordan) produced some sizable NORTHEREN PIKE.

Stay safe, good luck, and GO FISHING!
