Fishing the Colville River:
The Colville has long had a reputation for producing some hefty brown trout, and they are still there, though catching them isn’t always easy. The trout seem to be getting wiser all the time, and complicate matters a little more, much of the river runs through private property, limiting angler access. But if your willing to work at your fishing and to cultivate a few property owners, you might be rewarded with a trout of 5# or more. If you’re fly-fishing, try a grasshopper pattern of some kind.
