    Small stream, big brown

    Found myself a 17" wild brown in the Upper Patuxent special area last Saturday. Found one of my special spots in a tributary, cast in a heavy #10 bugger, and went for a ride on my 8' 4wt. This river used to harbor a number of fish larger than this but they all seemingly disappeared. This is the first reported of this size in a long while to my knowledge. The Fall bite has wound down and it's time to switch to Winter tactics.

    Awesome catch, especially on the 4wt! Thanks for the report, it's good to know there are some (well at least one) bigger fish up there.

    Nice catch! I just got back from fishing the North Branch of the Potomac in Western Maryland. Lots of fisherman out there still fishing and catching fish.

    It's pretty water out there but I've never had the time to make the drive!

    I make the trip from Dover a couple of times a year - sometimes with fishing buddies - sometimes without. This was a one day in - one day out trip. Well worth the trip there as alot of other streams and rivers (Cassellman, Youk, etc.) are pretty much dried up.
