  • Comments:
    November is a great time to observe brown trout spawining behavior. Hundreds of trout can be seen paired up on, protecting, and excavating spawn beds. Because of their increasingly aggressive behavior fishing with streamers provides great visual action!
    "Indian Summers" in November are also common and allow for large terrestrial dry fly fishing. These warm spells provide terrific dry dropper fishing. This is a great time of year to catch tons of trout with lots of solitude!
