Just curious. PA has been stocking brown trout the last few yrs. Has anyone been catching them trolling out in the lake?

I've never got one out of Coneaut or Ashtabula, and we fish for steelhead up there a bunch, that said I hear the occasional report of them being caught. Also the OH state record brown trout was caught up there last year.

From articles in magazines I gather their habits & preferred conditions are different that walleye & steelhead, so getting them as bycatch is limited. Don't really know of anybody in Ohio that targets them, and not sure how many migrate west from the PA waters.

I have a buddy that has caught two browns in the last few years. I've also heard of a few King Salmon caught in the past couple of seasons.

Salmon fishing in OH would most likely be a very lonely experience... :D
