Browns & Bows

I fished the River today with really low flows landing 28 Trout!The day was chilly with mostly cloudy skies!! I started the day off with five little Browns and then got into some decent vivid Bows on Rapala Countdowns! It wasn’t until the last couple of hours that the fishing really turned on.I lost two of my Dynamic J-Specs so I had to switch to a 3 1/8”” Rapala Husky Jerk in the Redfire Craw pattern which preceded to land me a 17” Bow and Brown! In the same area I pitched the Husky Jerk out again and got slammed by this nice 19” Male Brown! Fun day despite losing 3 Lures which is never good!

in order to catch fish one of the primary rules it, "ya gotta throw where you don't wanna throw"

I'd say ya done good!

AWB- 👍 A lot of people don’t fish strong current because of the difficulties of presenting lures properly as well as the possibility of losing big fish in the strong current! There were only a couple of those spots yesterday because of the low flows!

SGM- Thx! In 2016 I had my best Fall Trout Season size wise but this year has been my most productive fall season numbers wise by far! The weather has been perfect after the blazing hot summer we had!
