Default The Fall Brownie Run

I've been fishing the Clear Creek brownie run a lot recently and have had a lot of success! (I have pics posted in my blog)

Fun fishing and it's really fun to sight fish and have the chance to catch some big browns in a smaller creek. It's also pretty impressive to watch them spawning and stacking up.

Where else have you been fishing for the fall browns? Any fishing reports?

I caught 2 browns in the S. Platte in upper Cheesman Canyon, though they were just medium size and feeding out in rocks in deep fast water. Also got a big rainbow there, he did some nice aerials. All on nymphs. I saw some in shallower water, but was not sure if they were spawning so left them alone.

Incidentally, hiking into upper Cheesman in waders is not pleasant. It was my first time there, next time I'll leave the waders behind! beautiful hike though, not sure how far it is from the upper parking lot.

I've heard its a hell of a hike...but it gets you away from other people. I bet you probably didn't see another fisherman all day, our maybe only 1.

Glad you got into some fish!

We saw one in the parking lot who left before us, he must have gone a ways downstream because we didn't see him at the river. Saw another one walking in as we were leaving. Only saw a few hikers as well. I'm guessing it does discourage most folks from fishing there. Getting from the trail down to the river isn't always easy either. Loose gravel and slippery rocks. Would be a bad place to take a spill. It is a hike, but the views of the reservoir are amazing. They, and the fish, made it worth it.
