  • Good news...

    ... for you folks who love the Browns of Miller Lake:

    "Snow is likely blocking access. Catches in the trap net in the fall of 2018 resulted in a record catch of brown trout. Over 345 were caught in the net. The previous record was 177. All these fish were released alive. Average length was 18-inches with many three-year-old brown trout at 14- to 16-inches. The largest brown trout was 29 inches. Brown trout were also abundant at the mouth of Evening Creek."

    Sounds like next summer could be a good one.

      Get the lights for the small craft dialed in. Tie in rattles on the big flies.

      Red Bullin' all nighter for tuna-sized browns. I'm in!

      Who has a snowmobile for early season?

      Choices! We have a lot of choices in Oregon.

        Its always a delight to hear that there is someplace that fish are doing well! Even if I can't get there at the moment.

          Seems that the abundance is stunting the overall fish size...

            Good thing about browns is the big ones will keep getting bigger by thinning out the population.....I've seen 10 lb+ browns in places I would've never expected.....a desert spring fed lake in Central NV and a Sierra lake at 10k elevation.

            Miller fall rondi? Late mid october?

            I wouldn't say stunting. Just a lot of younger fish bring down the average. I am in for a rondi.
