Many Great Lakes tributaries still have migratory brown trout that have wintered in the rivers and are now on their way back to the Great Lakes. Migratory “drop-back” browns will hold in the slower, deeper sections of pools and especially in the deeper “tail-out” areas.

Best presentation is either drifting a fresh trout/salmon spawn-sack, or a single imitation TriggerX trout egg. Both are best fished with a good quality drift outfit like the Rapala Shift, Classic, R-Type, or Concept Ti series.
