I'm still not sure of a good method to specifically try and target browns. Certain flies, certain locations? Any help would be appreciated!

Nice fish! Sometimes it's just a rainbow kind of day! Had one of those days last week, couldn't find a brown anywhere but come up with three rainbows and two brook trout.

@ Ard- Thanks for the info. I will give it a try one of these days and see how I do.

I was fishing the Elk river in TN

Try giving streamers a shot. The browns around here like a lot of white and brown streamers.

Browns want meat. Big meaty streamers plus dusk or night time = big angry browns feeding

I've ordered some white and olive zonkers. We'll see how they work for me. Strip them fast or slow? Or just see what works?
