Default Fishing the brown trout spawn in a lake

It always has seemed that they come in best in the late afternoon into the darkness. Not sure if it has to do with the water being the warmest and going into darkness at the same time. I havent had much luck early for spawning browns...just wondering when others had done the best since it is that time of the year...

Evening has been the best for me as far as size goes.

Rivers early for sure

I have caught my most and biggest browns in the dark of the night. This is when they put a pause on their spawning to grab a meal.

Ive usually done better late evening also...the fish are less apt to spook, and seem to be be less worried about cruising and chasing each other around like i seem to see them doing during the day when they are spawning. during the day i have caught spawners just by dead drifting egg patterns, but at night/evening i can seem to catch them on streamers and other such patterns.
