October fishing report. Back to Brown

Last March my fishing report was all about fishing in a brown world. By the end of October most of the Northland has returned to that that same drab brown that dominates the landscape in Spring. The month of October forces fly anglers to chose between Steelhead or Muskies. While I guide for muskies, I would chose to fish for Steelhead left to my own devises. While fishing for Steelhead on the Brule River, one occasionally runs into large lake-run Brown Trout that migrate into the river and spawn.
