so apparently this has bass according to a gillnetting survey done on the watershed...has anyone ever even seen a bass come out of the river? I was there today fishing for about 5 hours around the highway bridge and just caught small wild rainbows and a small squawfish.

what's the deal?

The deal is the Brunette is a threatened urban watershed that does unfortunatly contain bass in the lower reaches.

I am glad to hear your were able to find more small native species like rainbow and pike minnow, that is good news! Here's hoping it stays that way.

yeah it was actually nice to see them, the river seemed relatively clean although I was thinking of reporting some of this brown-metallic sludge seeping from the banks at one spot...is this the "peat" that leaks into it, giving it it's brown color? The rainbows were VERY aggressive in hitting my flies, I started with a delicate presentation and got few hits...I then moved to a yellow wollybugger and stripped it in in long hard pulls and they absolutely SMASHED it. I wonder if they are more aggressive due to cohabitation with bass? Either way if anyone gets out there...single barbless, CnR!!!

cheers

Sounds like fun, thanks for the heads up. Live close by so I may heve to stop by some time in the evening!
Yep me too...I just got my new trout fly setup!

I've been wanting to check it out for years...I wonder how it fishes around the North Road crossing and upstream from there? The water runs slowly and looks perfect for dries. I think I'll try some tiny mosquito patterns...after I have checked the regs on the river of course! I know there are some areas where you can't fish on the Brun.

Cheers!
