Fish: Brown Trout

PB Master Angler Brown Trout

Post By: Team CO.F.F.      Posted: 4/21/2020 3:00:30 PM     Points: 54    
Landed my PB Master Angler Brown Trout right at 22" and at a good time. GF and I were doing a video on tips and techniques we use to get trout out of rivers with spinning gear and the water we typically look for to fish. Really outstanding day on the Colorado River as we landed a handful of big trout including - Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, Cutbow Trout, and a really aggressive, big white sucker that struck my HD Trout Lure.

Hope you guys enjoy the video and more importantly, have been able to get out and FISH!!

I'm not going to watch the video but you must have traveled to go on your fishing vacation because it was essential travel?

I bet the state would love to see your faces all over these videos bragging about not staying home while hundreds of thousands are obeying the health orders.

Awesome Brown! My favorite trout species. We should get outdoors whenever possible. Fishing is a great way to do it without forming large or tight groups. Good job!

Oddly enough now is the time they get really aggressive. I have had a few days in mid spring where the white and blue suckers get aggressive and nip at lures passing by them. I had a day last early spring/late winter where I caught 4 in one day and lost 2 others using lures...Maybe a spawning or prespawn thing?

Thanks Buffchip! Been searching for him for a while! Big browns are right up there for me along with Big tiger trout, both fights are great!! I fully agree about being outdoors and fishing, my GF and I have been avoiding the crowds and fishing a lot...Crazy to say that since the lockdown is the busiest i've seen most fisheries in years!! We've been avoiding the popular ones... Stay safe man and tight lines!

Thanks man! I am super pumped to get the brown trout off the Master Angler list...It was a fun fight and since i'd been searching for that length for a few years, didn't even think he was big enough at first lol. Wish people could travel and get up to the mountain rivers and mid elevation lakes, they are on FIRE right now!!! Stay safe and tight lines!

Thanks you guys, glad you enjoyed the pics and the video if you chose to watch it! It was a really fun day out there. Hopefully this COVID travel ban goes away soon (OPTIMISM) so people can get out here and get into some biggins!
