The Vibe Pro Team Weighs In On Regional Fishing Tips

Written by Lauren Nelson on August 13, 2018

As any Vibe Tribe member knows, Vibe has an awesome Pro Fishing Team made up of fishing experts from across the country. You can find them dominating in fishing tournaments, representing Vibe apparel and kayaks across their social channels, and contributing positively to the national network of anglers and kayaking enthusiasts. Want to get to know them better? We’re doing a three-part series on our pros, starting with the question: What’s the best time to go fishing in your region?

“Fall has the best fishing in the Midwest. The bass feed aggressively that time of year, which usually gives you the best chance to catch more fish and heavier fish. Fall is also the best time of year to get them on fun lures like top water poppers and buzzbaits.”

“The best time of the year to go fishing in Portland, Oregon is all year. Within 3 hours in any direction you can reach the ocean, the desert, the forest or 3000+ bodies of water. We have 4 seasonal salmon/steelhead runs a year. Bass is great from April to October, Sturgeon is around from April to October, and you can find cold water river trout year-round. We never get iced over during the winter and there is always a body of water to fish.”

“The best time to go fishing in the northeast depends on what you're targeting. In early spring the trout are running and feeding, and in early summer the bass are in pre-spawn and fattening up. However, it's hard to beat fall for the late season bite and colorful foliage. Maine is a great three season fishery (four seasons if you don't mind ice).”

-Matt Charette (@rural.fisherman)

“In the southeast, fishing is best during pre-spawn and post-spawn. When the water gets cold, the bass migrate to deeper waters and aren’t eating as much as when the water is warmer. Northern Snakeheads bury themselves in the mud and catches aren’t as plentiful. Once the water warms up, the lethargic bass come out from the depths and chomp on anything and everything they can before they start spawning.”
