Default Best time to fish this fall?

I have tried fishing the river from 6:30-10:30am and no luck. I also tried from 4:00-7:00pm and I did a little better but still not too great. I wade from the state parks to Warner Bridge road. I have been fishing this area for 15 years and this is usually my best time of year. Wondering if anyone else is having better luck at different times or do I just need to find some new areas to fish on the river?

I fish the same areas and it has been slow for me this fall also. The water is just so **** clear and the weeds so thick... Conditions are very difficult.

Try fishing deeper holes with a keeper hook twister and minnow combo!

Ha! That is the EXACT thing I tried last time out and it did produce the only decent fish of the day. Pumpkinseed color grub.

The problem, I think, is that even the deeper holes are tough to fish if not approached exactly right. With the gin clear water, the fish are so easily spooked.

Except the **** carp of course which won't bite anything!!!
