Its that time of year again. The big rainbows and browns are cruising around the Deerfield River! I caught this beautiful 19 inch rainbow on one of my favorite streamers. These fish put up a fight and strike the hell out of the larger buggers and streamers this time of year. According to ‘Game of Thrones’ – winter is coming – and these fish know it. They want something substantial to eat to preserve energy for the long winter months. These hold over fish are what makes the Deerfield such a great place to catch trout. It sure is a treat to catch a fish that’s lived in this river for years. Good stuff.
