Angling Report: Nov 2005 Lake Brunner region Fly Fishing Report

The weather continued warm and sunny through the first week of November, but did deteriorate a little after that. A few cooler days, some rain, and a fresh through the rivers but still no significant flood. Trout are growing fat and strong due to an abundance of food sources

Arnold River on a spring evening, as we waited in anticipation of a caddis hatch - snow-capped Mt Alexander in the distance

The guide takes his ease on a pretty spring day in November - the flood debris gives an indication of the river's potential to disrupt trout life... this particular log was deposited in February 2004!

Lunch time on a river beach in the middle of nowhere - Jim Butterbaugh, New Mexico, about to sample the contents of the large bag the guide has been carrying all day... 

Jim Butterbaugh found the spring conditions to be a little warm!

A nice brown makes a splash, keeping Jim's "Fun-meter" firmly in the green zone!

There is an amazing colour variation between brown trout, depending on their location - they change colour at will.

The middle of the month brought a colder southerly change, some heavy showers, and some amazing midge hatches on the Grey River.
