I had one of my best days for big browns. 13 fish landed and all were between 15" and 22". Several hit so hard it was musky like. Water was pretty low and relatively clear for this spot. Water is warming up and it won't be long before they seem to disappear. Wish I knew where the end up when it gets too hot. Photos of the 3 best fish.

First fish of the day. Just shy of 22", mean looking, and heavy! I could have turned around right then and would have been happy.

You sure do know where to find those bad boys. Beautiful fish! I was wondering if you could post a few scenery shots so I can narrow down the possibilities of where this might be. I'm pretty sure it is north of 94 but it's a crapshoot after that. Thanks for sharing. ThumpUp

Well I can tell you it's North of Hwy 18...and almost everybody is after other species of fish. I have about 6 other spots eyeballed that are similar and I will try at some point. Warm water(within reason) equals big trout.

Do you not catch any of these other species there or just not take/post any of those photos?

I usually don't post the other species unless it's something special. I've caught smallies, large mouths, northerns, perch, browns, and 1 brookie that I can think of. Suppose to be catfish and walleye too. Musky?? I don't use live bait there but I'm sure all of the rough fish species are in there too. I did see a 5 lb lg bass there about a month ago.

Damn, that's a nice mix. I gotta find me a river like that!

Also, north of 18? I'm not familiar with an 18 in WI...is that in MN?!

Big Brown River strikes again. Funny how they can be anywhere then they are so much harder to find after the river warms.
