We talked with Nolan Dahlberg about his top advice to help you catch those big, wary, slow wintertime brown trout. Here are his top 5:
1. In low clear water, focus on deeper slow pockets
2. Small, delicate presentations can get the finicky fish to make the move and eat
3. If the fishing is slow, they might just not want to eat! Give it some time and eventually, they’ll eat.
4. Leech patterns and egg patterns are extremely effective in the fall season for big Browns
5. Try putting a bead/egg pattern a couple inches in front of a streamer. This can really turn on a big slow fish.
