Hi Lefreng and welcome to the forums!
The upper sections of the Brule (south of HWY 2) closes September 30th. If you want to target the fall runs, stay downstream of HWY 2 (north of HWY 2). The recent rains, I'm sure there have been more fresh fish starting to come in the river. The weather is starting to cool down and signals the time is near for some fantastic Brule River fishing. But a lot depends on the weather.
The upper sections should have some lake run brown trout and possible some early jacks (young steelhead). You always have the resident browns, rainbows and brook trout and always gorgeous scenery.
If your going to canoe the lower sections, be very mindful and respectful of the anglers wading. The river is not a very large river and seems even smaller when the busy fall run season kicks in and there are lots of waders in the stream. The lower sections (north of 2) have lots of fisherman access points to choose from. Generally these aren't right on the river, but within walking distance.
End of the Sept and into October are great times to be on the Brule River. Some figure it out and some don't, but hay thats why we call it fishing!
You won't see me fishing the Brule, just too many people, unless your a very early riser. I'll be fishing bankers hours for bass, pike and musky on the fly :) Don't get me wrong, catching a fat hen on the fly is a hoot!
Have fun and tight lines!
