What is a brown trout? The brown trout is golden brown to olive-brown with yellowish sides. Its back and sides have dark spots encircled with light yellow or white. Some brown trout also have orange or red spots on their sides.

Where do you find brown trout? Brown trout are typically reclusive, preferring to stay out among underwater objects like fallen trees and undercut banks. Larger fish are frequently found after rainstorms that produce murky water. They can withstand slightly warmer water temperatures than other species of trout.

That means Bryson City is the perfect place to find large, beautiful brown trout. Even beginning anglers can catch upwards of thirty to fifty fish in a single day on the Tuckasegee River. Turning Stone’s knows all the right places to help you find your fill of brown trout.
