Sea-Run Brownies

The Sea Trout is a common name given to anadromous or sea-run forms of Brown Trout; they are widely found in Europe along the Atlantic and Baltic coasts, the United Kingdom and the coast of Iceland. Through the years, they’ve also been introduced into a wide range of freshwater habitats in Chile, New Zealand and Argentina, to name a few.

Unlike most Salmon, Sea Trout do not usually die after spawning, and around 75 percent of fish will return to the sea to feed and then come back again to the river to spawn. Going to the sea gives the Trout access to a much richer food source, with a range of small fish, crabs, shrimps and prawns all on the menu. Sea Trout will often be substantially bigger than the resident Brown Trout of the same river. Native fish living in streams and rivers average between 1lb to 5lb in weight, whereas stocked and sea-run fish can grow much larger when presented with favourable habitat conditions; specimens to over 35lb aren’t uncommon.

Sea Trout are highly prized as a game fish and are traditionally targeted when they return to freshwater; after spending time at sea, they’re well-fed and in peak condition, providing the freshwater fly fishing angler with some great sport. They hit flies hard, run aggressively, and the fight is often punctuated with aerial summersaults.
