  • Your favorite trout rig/setup?

    I'm about to go trout fishing soon and I haven't had any luck yet, but what is your favorite trout fishing rig/setup?

    where you going? Lake, Stream? If I was going to a lake I'd fish on the bottom or with a Bobber, I have a 2 rod endorsement, so I would do both. If a stream worm on a flasher till dusk then, flies.
    DON'T BELIEVE EVERY THING YOU THINK!

        But I also have a 2 rod license. So I'll also toss Little Cleo and / or Thomas Buoyant spoons, and Fire Tiger Rooster Tails.

          Lake - garlic powerbait/eggs off the bottom. River - brown w/ gold blade roostertail cast upstream

            Lake: marshmallows or worm OFF the bottom (use an inflator on the worms), pull a rooster tail or similar spinner while watching the other rod)

              Because the fish, are Italian immigrants.

              But seriously...

              their hatchery food, is laced w/ garlic.

                For lakes I like a garlic marshmallow just above a worm off of the bottom.

                For streams I like to drift a worm with minimal weight, if I am allowed. Otherwise I like to pull panther martins.

                Of course this means that I don't have my fly rod handy

                  Word. I used to catch lots of trout, that way. Often with just the worm, and no weight at all. Drop it into the head of a pool, and let it drift into the pocket. BAM!

                  P.S. One or two Pautzke's eggs, work much the same.

                    Ah, is this our carp master igquick or an imposter? My favorite lures for trouts are castmasters and I've always thought you had pointed me to them as something that works for you! Must be one of my imaginary memories...

                        Thanks for the replies yall I really appreciate it

                        Still trying to figure out this dang tapatalk!!!

                        Anyways, also trying to figure out how to tag montym; but to montym how are you? I haven't had kastmasters with me for a while so maybe that is why I been skunking lately...honestly my wife and I have just been wanting to catch fish off the kayaks

                        Minus my few carp spots that are a few hours away, we've managed to catch TONS of fish kayaking up and down the Willamette literally everywhere. Techniques included retrieving very slowly, or trolling the same small crappie red white tube jig

                          Check the regs for using bait in streams and rivers. some are lures and flies only.

                            Great advice. Particularly the McKenzie, Metolius, and Deschutes inland; and most of our Coastal streams are highly regulated.
