Whichever colors you have will work just fine as long as you are on fish. The fish will be feeding heavily and won't be picky.

Thanks. Wasn’t aware the same colors I catchbthem with during the spring spawn would also work in the fall.

Like fishin'aholic2 said - find fish, catch 'em. There are possibly a few colors that may not work as well as the many that do, but those that worked on a few outings, will always work. Even certain lure designs that have worked in the past, will always work, seasons notwithstanding.

I keep discovering more and more soft plastic designs or modifications of existing designs that catch most freshwater fish species - even in different colors.

All year...white chartreuse tail, all chartreuse, dark color chartreuse. . Seems like sunlight and clouds make a difference occasionally but I belive first you have to be where the fish are and second are they feeding.

If you should get on fish and the bite slows, change colors. Currently, chartreuse has been working well, but I always have a blue/white jig I pitch in when the bite slows and almost always catch a few more.

It's like a fellow TFF'er says "Color don't matter...until it does". I'll let the water clarity dictate whether I use a bright or dark color. Main thing is....you have to get it in front of them.
