Yes there are bigger and more browns which run the rivers off of a Lake Erie and Lake Ontario then here in Lake Michigan waters. They have better stocking programs there on Browns from what I hear. October to November is the target period for the big lake runs.


Keep this gentlemen FF off your waters unless you want the trophy brown fishery depleted. :hehe:

Hal (aka PMflyfisher):

They are about to turn the water off here (an about time I must say). I've been busy tying "trout crack" in anticipation of the new season.

I'm over here in the ohio tribs of lake erie.we don't see too many browns or salmon around here but a few turn up from time to time.The state puts in excess of 400,000 steelies into the system every spring and that makes for some fun fishing.I'll have to say we may not gey huge fish,average under 10 lbs, but we get alot of them.I gots to go tie more flies.out

So you are saying prime time is about to start ? Also prime time is arriving here, just needs to cool down a little more and get some rain.

Figures just when my work world goes crazy. With my luck I will be on a plane to Schweiser land soon where they have only small trout and grayling and most of the fishing is private.

Do you know where schweiser land is ?


Agree there are no browns over there;), got to try and keep John away from there.
