Does anyone here have any tips or techniques for catching brown trout in mid November. It has become my personal goal to land one before the ice arrives. What are the best lures and what techniques are used? All information is helpful, I'll be fishing for them again on Wednesday. Thanks!

I was just in William Lake this past weekend and it was really hard work to find the browns, they seem to really slow down in the cold. I did catch one 24 incher and that was it for the day. Started off with small wooley buggers and got nothing. Tied on a 4 inch black leech pattern and got a hit right away and then the one I caught. I would say go big and meaty looking, they really paid no attention to anything small.

No, I am fishing from shore although I would like to take my canoe. I figure I'll try some large crank baits and spinners tomorrow and see if that works.

I caught an unexpected laker on a small silver/blue crankbait in shallow water last week on LOTW.
I was trying to imitate a cisco pattern.

It threw up a bunch of small perch minnows.
