Brown Pound Town

 

 Pound Town is where huge brown trout mingle. Sometimes it's in the deepest darkest holes of your favorite river or lake. The spot you that gives you a gut feeling that a duckling eater is just napping the day away. You dream of being able to cast flies heavy enough to bonk him in the head. Lucky for us on the Yellowstone, Pound Town is quite often in a foot of water or less just off the willows. This is Mr. Brown Trout's summer home. These mamajamas lazily lay in wait, motionless, for huge juicy grasshoppers that will inevitably drift by. It just so happens that we at Angler's West love feeding these fish foamy grasshopper patterns! Also, this type of fishing will probably last until almost October this year with the copious amounts of water we have.  The season is ripe and looks to be long lasting.

AW Client Sherry Hipp caught this 23" bruiser while fishing with guide Burke Holmes. We are always on the lookout for phatties that are willing to eat fat hoppers like those that will be inundating us in the coming weeks. Where are you?
