Top Five Reasons To Go Fall Camping

Are you thinking about taking a Fall camping trip? Then consider these top five reasons to pack up your camping gear with the family this new season.

Summer is Gone & Fall is Here

With the busy summer season behind us, Fall is a beautiful time to go camping and relax. You and your family can watch the changing colors of the season and breathe in the newly crisp air. Camping in the Fall provides an excellent window of opportunity before the darkest days of the year set in.

Reason One – More Relaxing

The first reason to go camping during the Autumn season is the ability to relax more. Fewer people are camping at the lake, and this also means there is more availability of camping spaces.

Reason Two – Fewer People, Less Exposure

With the COVID-19 scare, many families are looking for a way to escape from the business of life safely. During the Autumn season, it is much easier to keep your distance while enjoying the outdoors. This can include making a new spin on your Fall holiday celebrations.

Reason Three – Creating Vivid Memories

With the Autumn leaves changing from green to beautiful Fall colors, you and your family can create vivid memories of the season. Hiking during the new season will vividly plant family memories never forgotten. You gain the ability to “take it all in” during this time of the year. Listen carefully without hearing all the summer hooray taking place. See all the changes taking place. Smell the crispness and breathe in the cooler air – creating an unforgettable experience.

Reason Four – Seeing the Wildlife

During your Fall camping excursion, you and your family can enjoy the outdoors more freely – see the wildlife moving about, view the changes in vegetation and trees.
Autumn campers will see more animals – bears, elks, deer, squirrels, moose, and other wildlife. Each lake area will include different native wildlife you and your family can see.

Reason Five – Fall Camping Discounts

Many campsites offer Fall camping discounts. Plan your family outing and call around to different grounds. Frequently, you will find more bottomless deals for your camping experience.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Sep. 21)

EXCELLENT. Water stained; 80 degrees; 1.70 feet below. Striped bass are good scattered from shallow flats to deeper water biting on slabs. Some topwater action early in the morning, and midday. Sand bass are mixed in with the stripers on shallow flats. Report by John Blasingame, Adventure Texoma Outdoors. Striped bass are great on live shad fishing main lake flats and secondary ledges in 30-40 feet of water. A lot of smaller fish with the occasional big fish, the size will improve as the weather cools off. Largemouth and smallmouth bass are slow with the amount of shad in the lake making it tough to fool them. Still off the banks in 8-15 feet of water fishing soft plastics late in the day and topwaters the first couple hours of the day. Key in on underwater points and brush piles using electronics. Blue and channel catfish are great on flats in 20-30 feet of water moving shallower as the water temperature cools off using cut shad and prepared baits. Trophy blue catfish season is just around the corner. Crappie are mostly undersized with better fish mixed in as you move around. Target roaming fish with electronics fishing the tops of brush piles in 10-15 feet of water. Minnows mainly and a jig if you get them biting well.
