Brownlee Reservoir - September 27-30
Fall crappie fishing at Brownlee was the toughest in many, many years according to locals but club members still managed to catch sufficient numbers for the freezer.  While numbers were down, size was up.  The smallest crappie caught measured 9" whilte the largest was 12 1/2".  Most were in the 10-11" range and trolling was the only effective method of catching since they had not schooled up yet, probably due to the unseasonably warm water temps.
