Aside from commonly being confused with Memorial Day, there is a lot of history wrapped up in the unofficial start of fall.
Moreover, it is significant to fly fishing. For example, did you know:
- On Labor Day, there is always a mayfly hatch in the Western states – sometimes it is just very, very light.
- On Labor Day, every fly shop that is open sells flies at the regular price.
- On Labor Day, tailwater dams are always regulated so that the temperature at the bottom of the lake is consistent.
- On Labor Day, brook trout always feed.
- On Labor Day, the weather is usually just a little bit warmer or a little bit cooler than you would expect.
- On Labor Day, every state is open to bass fishing (unless there are regulations that prohibit it).
- On Labor Day, you can always go fishing… but it might cause family drama when you are not at the annual cookout.
Have a great Labor Day, and tight lines/belts.
