Thread: Brule River

  1. Default Brule River

    Hello,

    I live about an hour north of the Brule River. I have only heard awesome things about it and I really want to go fish it. I don't want to hire a guide even though it would help me if I did. Could I just hop onto any part of the river and be able to find fish or are there certain sections better than others. I'm not asking for the exact hole but like are some 10 miles better than others. Any info on the topic would be extremely cherished!

    Thanks,

    Jack

    Jack, I've only fished it a few times, and then only for steel, but i sent you a PM so as not to "spot burn" on the internet.

    And just as something to consider, if after giving it a few shots on your own if you're not successful, or if you want to improve some specific techniques, you might consider getting a guide for a day or 1/2 day. Look for one, or get recommendations for a guide that is comfortable teaching--- rather than emphasizing fish caught on that one guided trip, look for one that can teach you what to look for on the stream, how to mend and present flies in current, nymphing techniques. Make sure you discuss this before hand with your guide so he/she knows what to expect.

    It's a great way to accelerate the learning curve, as is joining up with a local TU chapter or Federation of Fly Fishing affiliated club. These groups usually have group trips to local waters, casting clinics etc and it's a great place to meet some new fishing buddies.
