I have only done springtime fishing for wild brookies, but I have heard they are beautiful in fall. Heck, they're the prettiest fish I've seen just in their normal colors. The browns are definitely gorgeous in the fall with their fins turning red and all that. And they certainly don't behave like brown trout when the spawning time comes - they really throw caution to the wind. I remember a time many years ago before I started fly fishing I was fishing below Buford Dam one October with plastic worms and a spinning rod and I caught eight browns on eight casts out of the same little hole just below where that creek comes in next to the parking lot. And that wasn't the only time I caught them one after another like that. They really feed like crazy during the spawn.

He always had pics of 8 and 10 pounders at an old bait shop on South Cobb Drive. I tried his method on multiple occasions and was never able to duplicate his results, and although I caught a bunch of big browns, I never caught one that was 8 or 10.
Before they started stocking the stripers in West Point, we would flatten landing nets and scrape the face of Morgan Falls Dam for crawfish. These were good baits for big fish in that section of the river, down to 41.
Good luck! I'd like to hear how you do.
I remember the articles on him. Thought I had saved the magazine but can not find. I think I saw a couple of pictures of monsters he landed.
