Basically, big trout will eat big prey but if there is an abundance of small prey (numerous flies hatching) they will go for those also. That's why we can catch trout best measured in pounds on very tiny flies. If a big brown is just finning away and a mayfly nymph drifts by the brown will probably take it especially if there is little effort in doing so.
