Big Fall Brown Trout from The Parkland Region of Manitoba

I always get teased about my love of big brown trout! There are several lakes in the Parkland Region of Manitoba where you have a chance at catching a monster brown! We tangled with several last week. Everybody caught a biggie at some point during the week. Fall browns dress up and are beautifully coloured. The browns love to eat forage fish but they will also eat boatmen/backswimmers, bloodworms or anything that they can devour! It is neat to see the browns cruising along the tulles greedily eating small forage fish. You can see the forage fish balling up to protect themselves. The water gets "nervous" and you know that a brown is having a snack!
