10. Snowflakes. Well, at least in the high country it starts snowing soon. During that first snowfall of the year, when it's barely freezing, but really humid, and the snowflakes are the size of quarters… and everybody else is running to the grocery to stock up on milk and eggs, do yourself a favor and head straight to the river. Because more often than not, that first snow, when the quarters are falling from the sky, will trigger a blanked baetis hatch that will blow your mind and make you realize just how many trout really do live in the river. I'm not making any promises, but if you catch it right, it could change your life. It will at least make you forget about summer for a while.
