While many anglers are targeting larger migratory rainbow trout that are finishing their spawning runs in most of the Lake Ontario, Lake Erie, & Lake Huron tributary streams, other anglers have their sites set on catching early-season resident brown trout. Most of the major tributaries have healthy populations of resident brown trout in their upper-reaches. Most anglers donâ€™t like the challenge of blazing trails through heavy brush, but thatâ€™s what it takes to find good-size, elusive resident brown trout. Successful anglers normally catch their fish where other anglers seldom fish. The recent rains we had mid-week created turbid head-water conditions which stimulated resident browns to move out of their â€œconcealment areasâ€ (under-cut banks, log-jams, roots from trees growing along streams, etc.), to feed in the open-runs and pool, which made them much easier to locate and catch.
