I used to hit the "falls", about the 2nd or 3rd week of Oct. Was usually always a lot of fish. Harder to access now as I have heard that the LIDO island is closed. Used to be able to park there then just slide down the hill to the falls. I think it's only 3 miles up from the lake, not a far run. First day I would usually just try and get my 3 salmon to take home for people who wanted "meat", then concentrate on the browns, lakers, and steelies, that are usually up in the ripples before the falls.
