Lake-Run Brown Trout 9/18

For at least the last week or two Great Lakes trout and salmon have been making their move up the tributaries.  I visited my favorite local trib today and was pleased to connect with a beautiful brown around 24”.  I did not see a ton of salmon moving, but they did make their presence known.  Things will only improve for the … Continue reading »
