Fall Brook Trout Fishing
In October or November trout ascend to the headwaters of the streams for the purpose of spawning. Then they drift gradually back to lower waters and early spring finds them in the pools and deeper portions of the stream. At this time the water is usually bank-high and full of "snow-broth." Even after the snow has disappeared from the immediate vicinity of the river snow-water is still running, for in the deep mountain ravines from which the little "feeder" brooks flow down ice and snow remain until the season is well advanced. Thus early in the season trout are torpid and when hooked show little or no spirit. As soon as the river is fairly clear they will take bait, and this is the most successful way of fishing for them at this time.
