Some people will tell ya the bruisers come out at night. Earlier this year I was night fishing throwing a 7" Bomber magnum series saltwater plug on falling water and a 27" hook jaw brown absolutely slammed it. It was a heck of a trout.

Never tried it myself, but it seems they are generating 24/7 on the Caney right now. It may be a little tough fishing in that fast of a current

In my opinion its the only time to fish when they are generating. i caught a 25.5 in brown last week while they was generating 3 generators

I used to quite often years ago, caught some real nice browns. I'd either throw a countdown or Carolina rig large live bait.

Wow, thats awesome. My only experience with trout and generation is below Tims Ford on the elk river and we never could catch anything there when they were generating. I haven't trout fished in many years though.

I've always had the most luck with trout on the Caney with no generation. That's awesome being with them going. But I've heard of others going there only at night with generators going and getting the big one....so good luck, and if you get em..post a pic

All the larger trout I've caught in the Caney came either at night or early morning. During the day, on no generation, you can catch 10-12" trout all day long but the bigger ones don't come out until night to feed. Occasionally you can catch the larger trout in the daytime during generation if you float it.

I fish the White river at night for browns. I throw a #11 Countdown Rapala and have had very good success. I caught a 13 lb brown last may and have caught 2 others over 28" and a good number in the 18" to 24" rangeBrown Trout
