Fished 12/11.

Walked a lot of river. Estabrook and Hubbard. River seemed entirely empty of fish. 

Wondering how others did. Is the brown run over...?

I wanna come down this Saturday to try fishing the river. Do you think drifting spawn under floats and tossing spinners and husky jerks would work well or should I be tossing something else.

Browns have been in since the end of October. Seeforellen strain spawns about now so were about peak to starting to come down for numbers in the rivers.

The brown caught was full of almost ripe eggs. Can't say how long they keep eggs. Maybe 3 weeks (?). 

Photo of fly used attached. 

Was fishing a 2' deep current flow of water that was flowing faster than the surrounding water.

Hey Realfish,

Nice catch! I'm somewhat of a newbie to this river fishing for browns. I'm trying as best I can to get a hen that still has eggs. What were you using as bait? Also, when the browns get in, how long before its too late to try and get a hen that still has eggs? Thanks.
