What to do This Fall
The Fall season is in full swing in the Colorado Mountains. Soon the streams, lakes, and rivers are going to begin churning with fish hormones with the beginning of the Brown Trout Spawn. The Brownies will begin their annual Kype-Jaw metamorphosis, and become super charged with extra testosterone and estrogen, making them super agitated and aggressive.
Often Brown Trout are territorial by nature. Mix the cooling of the water with an over release of hormones and you have the perfect recipe for some great fishing, only if you know the correct technique. In the shallow and clear creeks and rivers during the fall, it is sometimes possible to see Brown Trout chasing sculpin and bait fish off their spawning beds.
So the answer to ask one's self is what do I own in my fly box that can imitate this scenario. The answer should be the STREAMER!!! The streamer fly imitates a sculpin or minnow trying to rob the Brown Trout off its loving eggs.
