Millers River Browns - Before And After
I was wading through my photo collection while waiting for the Millers to become wadable and ran into these two photos of browns from the Millers. The photo on the left is of a brown taken about two years ago in late May. It was stocked about three weeks before. Notice the light color of that fish. Now check out the other photo. This brown was taken in late May of this year and is surely a holdover fish. All of the browns stocked in the Millers will darken up as the summer rolls on and if luck is with them they will survive the winter and will have that dark golden hue the next season. The neat thing is that I'm seeing more of the darker browns as the seasons roll by.
The Millers is at the 1000cfs level as I write. Still too high for the kind of fishing that I like. I'm thinking that the 500 level will be reached by July 1st. Until then it's the Swift River.
