Ya they're very common in Europe and the East Coast of the U.S. I think I even read an article about them being in California somewhere. Here's some pics I found on Google.

Do Brown Trout taste good?

Do Brown Trout taste good?

Yes. Yes. Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Browns are not bony and they have a fantastic flavor. That monster(HAPPY HALLOWEEN!) posted by beaverfan(GO DUCKS!!!) caught by that angler has a mouth like a northern Pike! Yow! Though that other pic looks like a salmonid. Hmmm. Browns ARE a member of the salmon family, not trout, if I remember right.

New Zealand Trout

New Zealand Trout

My Uncle Richard went to New Zealand 30 years ago, and caught big trout galore. He told me the average trout caught in NZ was 2 feet long. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Naw!

Naw!

Atlantic Salmon don't get that big! They have 'em in East Lake, I've caught dozens of them trolling Ford Fenders, half brass half silver blades, using a snubber ahead of the hook. Of course, AS could get bigger elsewhere. Still a beautiful fish!

In Nova Scotia and the U.k they run from 15 - 45 pounds, and the average chilean farmed fish are harvested at 16-20 pounds. You say there are landlocked atlantic salmon in Oregon?....... Pictures?

Getting back to brown trout in Oregon. Have you fished Linton Lake? My biggest is a 19 incher caught on half a night crawler under a sliding bobber.

Linton Lake & Atlantic Salmon

Linton Lake & Atlantic Salmon

Linton Lale? Isn't that along the McKenzie Pass Hwy? A short hike? Lot's of old lava flows? Brookies and Browns?
About Atlantic Salmon: East Lake, Hosmer, and Gold Lake has them, according to the Oregon Fish Finder:

Oregon Fish Finder

HHM, I got some old pics somewhere of those Atlantic Salmon. That was before I went digital. I'll try to find them and scan them.

That's what I said earlier. Mealworms! I'd slide one up the line and another on the hook.

I agree Meal worms are Awesome. There are some hybrid cuttie rainbows in Harriet to they love those things also. But, the browns kill em for sure.

Have 2 second an earlier post. Big Browns on the Owyhee River below the dam. Last summer caught a 23" with a 3 wt fly rod. Using a big hopper and a size 20 dropper. The fish took the small nymph and the battle was on.

Good fun and you can see them slurping bugs on the surface.

Lower Owyhee?

Lower Owyhee?

Wow. I thought that stretch was about dried up in summer due to all the irrigation water diverted out of Owyhee.
