Default Brown Trout Fishery Turns To Smallie Mecca?

I have fished the Pine River for 25 years and only caught one smallie.

In the last 3 days...the neighbor boyz have caught 3 nice ones and

today I went 2 miles upstream and scored 2 fattie smallies.

Was obvious that I didn't have a brown on. They were bustin sky right

away and they fought like their tails were on fire.

How can a brown trout fishery switch so dramatically?
