Big Brown

Brown Trout, May 22nd 2011

When I said Simmons and John had a good day yesterday this is what I meant. They just sent it to me so thought I would share it. They caught it on one of the old streamer patterns we tie up. These guys had an excellent day and others I talked to had a miserable day. I guess it’s who’s fishing and where and how.
The river is still holding at around 4000 cfs. We had a pretty heavy rain shower this afternoon so who knows. Extended forecast  is yet more cool showery weather.
By the way, those waves below the new dam have settled down a bit with the higher water. Best to go through it in a raft and a low side drift boat will get you wet. I just took photos of  Tony and Sue going through it in their raft—-lots of whooping and hollering. Will post them tomorrow.

  1. Nice, Wilcox. We fished up high over there yesterday and did ok. No brutes like this one, that’s for sure. In fact, we didn’t see a brown all day. A few fish on nymphs, a few streamer chases, but then pushed off in the cold rain.

  2. looks more fun than work…..jealousy.

  3. Looks like that fish was caught in a pond. Just kidding!
