November is an exciting time for anglers in Utah -- especially those who are fond of pursuing trophy-size brown trout.
Many of them know late fall is one of the best times of the year to catch big browns as the fish go into spawning mode and get more aggressive than usual.
Fall is an ideal time for fishing anyway, as boating activity on local lakes and reservoirs drops off and the water cools, making all fish more hungry as they try to fuel up for the long winter. But it's an even better time to target browns because of their aggressive nature during the spawn.
There are a couple of reasons for this change in behavior this time of year. First, the browns are looking to increase their food intake to provide the energy required of them to successfully spawn.
