S3:E20 The Wonders of Brown Trout Fishing

Brown trout fishing is everywhere, mostly because the browns have taken over the American waters. Brought over to America in the 1800s, this European specie has thrived globally, even pushing out some native trout in the process. In this episode, we give a brief overview of this beauty, tell a few stories, and offer a few takeaways on catching more fish.

  1. Another great episode. I enjoyed the comparison between the “fight” inherent to each trout. Living in the east the big three are Browns, Brooks, and Bows. To apply the always apropos sports metaphor, Rainbows are the wide receiver (agile and acrobatic), Browns are the fullback/TE hyrbrid (using brute strength to fight for inches), and Brookies the running back (fast little guys not to be underestimated). May all your trout be footballs. Tight lines.

    1. I to like the comparison between species. To add to the comparison wild vs stock . A wild rainbow have way more fight in them than stock in my opinion

  2. I enjoyed your recent brown trout podcast on the way to the stream this morning. One comment, however, gave me pause. In some watersheds wild rainbows are flourishing in the East. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park for example has a sustaining population in many of its streams. I’ve even brought a few to net. Thanks this podcast and all you do for our community.

    1. I sure wish the rainbows would flourish in the Minnesota/Wisconsin Driftless watershed.

      The browns are everywhere, and there are still the native brookies here and there. But the dominant fish is the brown.
