    Techniques for catching Trout aside from a fly rod

    Hi I've been looking up trout and there is going to be several stocks around where I live with rainbow and brown trout, and I was wondering if there are any tips you guys could give me on how to catch them. I don't have a fly rod.

    Thanks Kenneth

    Float fishing with worms, mealworms and other insect larvae works very well. Also you could try spin fishing with a small spinner.

    If your new....spinfishing w/ lures. Or...i hate to say it. Powerbait off the bottome. Put a split shot about 12-18" above your hook. Put on a small piece that covers the hook...not too much bigger. A size 10 hook works great. Rainbow or orange powerbait was my favourite when i fished this way. You can also get orange power eggs...first put a worm on your hook...then the egg. The egg helps float the worm and has scent to attract them.

    Let us know how you do.

    Buy yourself a lure called a rooster tail. Retrieve the lure slowly so the blade is barely swimming. Trout can't resist it.

    Hey guys just an update I went fishing for rainbows today using the Berkeley power bait, and caught two but lost about seven. My question is what is the good size on a rainbow trout for the dinner table? I kept the 12" I caught today. The other was eight inches

    Kinda depends in where you live...personally I think the 8-12" stockers with white meat are kinda gross to eat. I like trout to be around 16"-22" to eat. They will generally have pinkish-orangish meat that is much more firm and tasty. It's also easier to deal with the bones.
