[nggallery id=389]The water level was up quite a bit today and the color was stained, but that did not keep the trophy browns from hitting. On my first drift I hooked a nice female brown trout that was still full of eggs. About one hour later I caught another beautiful male brown trout. Both fish hit my 4″ long, hand-tied bunny-fir streamer fished under a slip-bobber rig. I tested two of the Rapala Magnum Steelhead rods today, the 10′ and 12′ model both paired up with the Rapala Volt spinning reel and loaded with 8 lb. test Sufix Titanium Plus yellow monofilament. I also used a 24″ section of Sufix fluorocarbon leader connected with a small swivel. Both outfits performed extremely well even with -4C air temperatures. I had no problems with freezing guides and landed both fish that I hooked! Tomorrow I’m planning on checking out the Upper NY tributaries that flow into Lake Ontario.
