Limited Out On Trout on the Blue River but.... Saw Many Bruisers!

Decided to fish the Blue River today.  A Trout Derby was being held, so the river was busy but... the Trout action was great.  Caught a limit of six Trout but none were the size of the Bruisers caught by some lucky anglers! 

Was a great day to be out on a river fishing; even better that it was the Blue River and the chance of Trout to be caught.  Seemed like everyone was getting a bite!

Breakdown of the fish caught today:
  • First Trout caught on a Gold Ribbed Hare's Ear Nymph
  • Second Trout caught on a Gold Super Duper
  • Trout 3,4, and 5 caught on Orange Powerbait
  • Caught and released a Trout using a BH Olive Wooley Bugger
  • Trout 6 caught on Orange Powerbait

Limit of Blue River Trout!

Bruiser Caught This Morning!

Bruiser Caught This Afternoon!


  1. What is a bruiser? I tried to figure it out in your blog for the longest time. I am not fly fishing, but reel and rod fishing. Is bruiser a fly fishing term?

  2. Bruiser is a term the Field Team made up. It means a fish that is bigger than the norm for a given community lake, pond, etc.... For example, Bethany Lakes Bruisers can range from 2 pounds on up. Hope this helps.

  3. Thank you for the explanation, I appreciate it! By the way, have you tried fishing at Auburn Springs in Allen? Lots of luck there with "bruiser" (see, I get it! :-)) catfish and bass. I fish there a lot.

  4. I have fished Auburn Springs and have caught Bluegill, Sunfish, and Bass. Have not caught a Bruiser there as of yet, but do know of others who have caught and released some nice Bass!
