I am back home fishing for brown trout ones again. The water flows have been a little better than it was last year but not much. As result the brown trout have been slow to run. The best fishing has been on the Oak Orchard River, there's is a few Brown trout spread out from the dam on down river. Most of the fish have been concentrated in the fast water. We are having our best success fishing size 10 egg patterns to these fish. Fishing pressure has not been as intense as it has been other the past years, with the exception of the weekends.
All of the smaller area streams and creeks are experiencing low water flows and a slow start to the Brown trout run. Hopefully the fishing will improve over the weeks to come.
The Genesee River’s water flow is back up, the water is high and muddy again. The Genesee River has been this way for the past three or four days. By the way the weather and conditions are looking. I suspect it will be at least a week before we can consider fishing this river once again.
How have we been dealing with the slow fishing? Cover a lot of water. Right now most of the Brown trout are male Browns. These Brown trout are moving on a daily basis, looking for prime spawning habitat and female Browns. These fish can be anywhere, this is a hunting game. We have been walking the rivers until we spot a fish and then fish to that fish and see if we can get it to eat the fly. After that we move on until we spot a other fish and then repeat.

November is Brown Trout time. These are monster Brown trout, most weighing in around 7 to 10 pounds. Every fall we catch a few Brown trout that are weighing in around 16 to 18 pounds. The dates that are still open for November are 15, 25, 27, 28, and 29. I also have a lot of days available for the month of December. Despite the cooler weather December can be a great month for fishing for both Brown trout and steelhead. By December I'll be fishing both the Western New York tributaries and the Salmon River.
