The giant Salmonflies of the Western mountains are legendary for their proclivity to elicit consistent dry-fly action and ferocious strikes.

27" brown trout, my largest ever. It was the sub-dominant fish in its pool. After this, I hooked the bigger one, but I couldn't land it.

This discussion is about Big Brook.

I sampled nymphs in this small trout stream and found a useful mix.

I'd say it's worth a try, like any small streams in the area, with attractor flies. I fished it only once and didn't catch much.
