Fall Browns

I fished the Gunnison River today with Chet! I landed 42 Browns and Chet caught 39 Browns! We both caught all of our fish on a Crappie/Hair Jigs and Dynamic and Rapala X-Rap Jerkbaits! Both of my best fish came on a Brook Trout Patterned Dynamic Jerkbait!

Hero worship time again!!!! I obtained my degree up there which could explain a lot. It's why I came very close to saying "8 years of college down the drain"!! There was a legendary fisherman/ outdoor writer/postmaster named Ben Snyder who my buddys grandma grew up with. I would bet NOBODY knows who he was. He could get on ALL the private land up there--and he would take me whenever and wherever I wanted. My GPA suffered every fall. Brings back memories. Beautiful fish!! I used to drag those marabou jigs thru Tomichi with great success on those browns. Thanks for the pics.

The Black Canyon is awesome! We really liked the Morrow Point boat tour. One of my favorite places in CO.

SirGreg- His name sounds familiar? Always nice to have someone put you on less pressured waters! No matter how your College experience suffered nothing can beat that personal in touch with nature adventure! The outdoor experience refreshes the soul! I believe everyone needs to get away and release the everyday stresses! Fall Trout Fishing is the best. 🤙🎣

Bron- The upper section of the canyon is a magical escape!👍🍻

I have looked online but not much of a computer guy. I would bet there are actual physical outdoor mags in the Western State library. Cant remember the names of the Colorado outdoor mags but he did teach me one thing which helped in college. He said most people write with a thesaurus---using a lot of big words. He said the art of writing was to say a lot between the lines--with the fewest words possible. Wished I saved my box of copies. He definitely had a style about his writing. It made you feel like you were actually there on a crisp fall day with the air cold on your skin but the sun warming it at the same time --etc etc......

Some people truly do know how to grasp the moments in writing! Sounds like an interesting down to earth educated man.The mornings in the fall can be pretty chilly but the afternoon warmth along with the fish feeding ravenously makes it all worth it! 👍🎣

Yes there is something about fall that is just awesome. The break from the dog day heat, football, harvest, the leaves turning, the successive marching cold fronts, crowds dwindle to almost nothing and of course----THE BIG FISH MOVE IN CLOSE,. You just have to be willing to freeze your hands off in the morning!!
