Jigging isn’t very popular for brown trout, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t be effective. If you find some deeper pools in rivers where brown trout congregate, these would be good spots to break out the vertical jigging technique. There are some areas in the Great Lakes also where brown congregate in large numbers. It could be a harbor and the fish are coming in to spawn. It could be the mouth of a river or a warm water discharge area. There are some areas to break out the jigs to jig up some of these fish, but it definitely isn’t the best technique for them in most situations.
