Brown trout anyone?

Anyone got some stories or info on our brown ones? The pic of the water shows the browns out there. Beautiful place. I've only been able to catch them on one thing: meal worms on a #6 bait hook with sliding sinker. And they'd take the bait so lightly that watching your line being slowly sucked into the water was the only strike indication you had. Awesome. Great fighters and very tasty.
Where I catch them is one of the coolest places I've ever been to.

Fat brown! I had to add your pic into my photoware so I could lighten it up enough to see the fish. Nice!

Is Miller Lake open all year? This question was meant for your other thread on Miller Lake. I'm a dork.

Ive got a great story,

so it was probably 8 years ago at paulina lake in late june. We go there every year. Weve gone there with 2 other families ever since i was born. All of us kids were down at the lake fishing from the bank, when an older couple came up and asked if we wanted there kokanee that they caught during the day because they had to go home. We said yes and thank you and kept fishing for a while. A couple of hours go by and we decide to go back and play a little trick on the dads tell them that we caught all 7 of the kokanee from the dock. Before we could tell them that it was a joke the dads were in the boat heading down there to try and get some. So we all run down to the dock and by the time we get there, the dads are anchored up jigging for kokanne. But my dad decided to put on a worm, within 10 minutes of being there he hooked into a real nice 6lb brown. Its something that i will never forget and we laugh to this day about it.

Brown trout is the next on my list to catch since I have never caught one. They look like beautiful fish though. Can anybody suggest a place to go with a half way decent chance of catchin one??? I am heading to the redmond area from albany next weekend and heard that there were some good places to go over there but nothing too exact. Thanx in advance

Anyone know if Oregon has any sea run brown trout runs? I've read about them online before. I'm pretty sure there are no rivers in the northern half Oregon that have them, but no idea about further south.

The best place I have found to catch browns over there is East Lake.
I have had luck with spinners an rapalas.

I have always had good luck for browns at the top end of billy chinook on the dechuttes arm, plus you can always count on the redsides and kokes

Darn nice brown's, people!
Where did I catch mine? Far away. It's the conjunction of the Spring River and the North Umpqua. It's called Brown's Hole by the locals. The Spring River is hard to find as it is only about 7000 feet long. It's on GoogleEarth or GoogleMaps. Not too far from Diamond Lake.

Is Miller Lake open all year? It has, I believe, 5 species of game fish it in, by the way. Let me check real quick..... On page 77 of the ODFW Fishing Regs, it would seem to indicate that Miller Lake is open year 'round. It's North of Crater Lake and across the divide from Diamond Lake. It has Browns, Kokes(25 per day limit), Rainbows and Brookies in it. There's a real nice Forest Service Campground there and a sign that lists the fish in it. I seem to remember 5 species.
The ODFW has a companion site called the Oregon Fish Finder. It's interesting but needs lots of updating. It's at:

Oregon Fish Finder
