Don’t let the fall season pass you by.
Or, if you do…no worries.
The fish are trapped in the river.
They are pretty healthy for this time of year. Do see some Saprolegnia in some brown trout. Has occurred before when the populations exceed the historical averages. And we are currently 200% of average for both the brown and rainbow populations
The weight of the bows is particularly amazing as well.
Brown trout lose weight as the winter goes along while rainbows generally gain weight in advance of the spring spawn.
They may be huge as we move out of winter into spring.
Only time will tell.
Give those brown trout a break when you find or pass by those breading areas. They are on the spawn and need some space to conduct some lovin’.
