Night Fishing Browns.

Recommended Posts

Last week I made a trip to stauffer, and although I didn't have much luck it was a rewarding day as I saw 3 huge brown trout. They each were well over 20". Between pretty much crawling up to pools and trying to not lose all my flies in trees I was able to get some chases on streamers. But it wasn't meant to be with no hookups.

This week I plan on going back, but this time in the evening and into dark. I've heard a ton about how browns are nocturnal and it can be the best time to fish them. But I've never attempted it, nor have much experience with Browns of this size.

Anyone have any advice for me attempting my first night fish? I am curious if I should be going bigger? Mouse, frog, big streamers? Also I'm a little unsure on the legalities of using a light. If I wear a headlamp to help me see where I'm casting is this illegal. From what I read only light allowed must be attached to hook or line. I do not want break any regs on this trip.

This river has nearly broken me many times, but last trip left me optimistic I am starting to figure it out a bit.

Thanks,

That river is perfection and the fish that thrive in it beyond purity.It should never be fished with anything other than a DRY FLY.If you want to hoike out fish from a river go to the Bow in Calgary.

 

Just my own opinion,love it or leave it.
