Big Brown Today

Recommended Posts

Bi.jpg

A couple highlights:

Took a Cicada pattern I tied last night

absolutely crushed the fly

took me 75 yards downstream in a couple minutes

I was stumbling around like an idiot trying to keep up

The fish somehow was able to jump completely out of the water..

Ended up tiring out near another angler who was nice enough to take a picture and email them too me.

I would write more, but I am one very tired and happy dude. It is the biggest trout I have caught to date.

Almost forgot she was released and still had plenty of energy...she'll make it.

Great fish! On a dry fly too. That is something to be proud of. You won't be forgetting him anytime soon.

I was actually just gonna start up a thread asking if they were still taking Cicadas down there (hoping to head down Friday and Saturday), but I think you just answered my question.

Thanks guys. It was awesome to catch and something I won't soon forget.

Very nice fish , catching it on top with a cicada pattern makes it even better! Did you see many fish keying in on the cicada poulation?? Hope to make it down next weekend and just wondering if I need to research cicada patterns and tie up a couple before I head out....Jeff

The Cicada's were spotty today...and to be honest I didn't see may flying around. However, I think the cold front Friday night knocked everything back. I had a 8-10 hits on the Cicada and hooked up with 4 fish. 3 nice rainbows and then the Brown. I would bring Cicada patterns for sure...even if the Cicada's are slowing down it is getting closer to hopper soon so they would work in that regard too. Big black foam bodies with orange under body some legs and wings should do the trick.

Wow! Awesome, beautiful brown. I don't recognize the stretch of river from the background. On top too, dang! She goes, 20"+, looks super fat, probably 16-17", 7 lbs.+ I'd estimate. Congrats! You'll never forget this one, especially after those long runs.
