Already beginning is the aggressive pre-spawn behaviors of large brown trout and brookies. On the brown side of things that means mice and streamers for BIG fish. Farmington trips to come, hopefully.

On small streams fall and early winter means nymphs and egg patterns for some of the biggest wild brown trout in the river. I'm talking 10-20 inchers out of small top mid sized rivers. Not a glorious or romantic way to fish, but it sure gets the job done! Of course I'll be using dries and small streamers for stunningly colored brook trout in the coming monthes as well.
