Default Brown town

Decided to explore a new stream today. It was still flowing fast, and it had clearly run completely over its banks last week with all the rain. Caught 10 little browns about like these out of flood lies before the slight stain started turning into a heavy stain. There must've been a quick shower uphill, but I didn't see anything else to indicate it. I've got no confidence throwing streamers on bluelines, but this would've been a perfect day for it.

Nice job! We you using dries (looks like one in one fish’s mouth)? Pretty crazy that they would still rise in high water. Did you try nymphing at all?

Yes, dry flies with long casts were the ticket. Despite the stain, I couldn't get close enough to euro nymph without spooking them (or at least that's my guess since I wasn't getting any strikes and I didn't get any strikes on dries until I started laying down 30+ foot casts) and dry dropping wasn't drag free enough given the conditions.

Good job!

Last Saturday, the Killer Kyle and I went specking up in Rabun and was surprised to learn the creek now is populated with wild browns! We didn’t all the way to the head but we were very high up the flow!
