I'm leaving home at 5 AM tomorrow to go to a river where the Sea Run Brown's start to come back to spawn this time of year. With plenty of rain the past day or 2 raising the rivers and cooling them, hopefully they'll be chasing my flies!!!

Can you send some of that water my way? The rivers are low low low here.

We get a bonus Kokanee run along with the browns here, and big cuttys and bows follow them both to feast on eggs. Hubba, hubba.

If the Brown Trout are on redds, I'm going to leave them alone to insure that there will be another generation of browns to come. I won't mind hooking up with one that is cruising around.

MP. makes an excellent point here!

I know it is hard to walk away from a bed full of fish but fishing the beds can leave you with some bad memories. I posted some advice for another member on this thread about fall brown fishing. Saturday Morning - Colinet River If you haven't read the thread and looked at Jamie's pictures you might as well go take a look.

Ard makes a great point. The irony of it is if people would just drift an egg pattern in the head of the run below the riffles that the redds are in they would probably score a big fat Cutty or Bow feasting on brown eggs.
