we dont have browns around here but there are a few spots they do stock but if cought have to be releast. but we do fly fish the smaller river streams for rainbows though. do prety good with popeye gigs and some times with some bead heads. I'm in KY and live right at a lake with the tail waters stocked a few times a year. although the rainbows dont seem to stay right around the dam, they mostly move down stream to shallower water with riffs between deep pockets.

My brother lives on a great little stream, only about 10' wide. It's very brushy so fly fishing is out. I have the best luck with 3'' rainbow trout Rapalas, the floaters. 12-14'' is the norm, but 14-18'' is not uncommon. Once in a while I'll get a 20'' one. This might not sound that big compared to fish from bigger rivers or Lake Michigan, but it's a riot battling one in a small stream with lite tackle. And because of the brush and all the curves in the creek, your usually only flipping your lure ahead 20' or less and you can almost always see the fish when they hit.

Whenever I use worms or crawlers, all I catch is chubs.
