Another excellent Saturday on the upper Arkansas River catching brown trout. Nymphing a golden stonefly with a small Jujubaetis dropper was the winning combination all day! Even on what was essentially still the 4th of July weekend I nearly had the entire stretch of river to myself - on what was perhaps my most successful day fly fishing any river, anytime. 16 brown trout netted, including a couple fatties over 18 inches. And all on public water. I do love this sport!

I love those brown trout. Very pretty, and better tasting than a rainbow. I caught some golden trout in Yosemite in the sixties up by a glacier in the Toallame river valley(can't the name). I don't remember the fly.

Posted by LeutrelleI know this is not fly fishing, but it is as close as I can come:)

Posted by MrLinkThe Copper John - perhaps responsible for catching more trout that any other single nymphing fly pattern.
