I must admit, I kept wondering as I was reading this thread about the references to Rainbows spawning in the Spring. I realize there are many exceptions, but I was under the impression that brown trout generally spawned in the Fall, while Rainbows spawned in the Spring.
There are both fall and spring spawning rainbows on the Clinch as well as some other tailwaters in Tennessee...browns only spawn in the fall though I believe...
