When is the start and peak of Brown Trout spawing season for the Smokies? Do they run the lake tribs like the Rainbows when they are spawning?

I did the several Rainbow spawn runs and caught a few very big fish in the spring and I would like to try my hand at browns.

I bumped this up because I have always wondered as well what the process for spawning is in the park for the bows and browns. Few Questions:

1. Do they spawn in the same waters where they primarily reside or do they actually attempt to return to a certain spot?

2. Does their coloration change?

Just curious. The wild fish of the park always fascinate me.
