I am going to be up at Waldo Lk camping and riding my mountainbike next week. I always bring my inflatable raft so I can fish nearby Charlton Lk. I don't think it has been stocked in a while, but I know there are lots of trout in it. I have tried trolling or casting spinners and using a wooley-bugger behind a split-shot. I have caught just a few nice fish in the lake this way. In fact, I usually get skunked, even while fish are jumping around me like I am in a giant popcorn-popper. Does anyone know a better technique for getting these shy Charlton Lake trout to bite? I don't have a fly-rod. Any info on fishing small, high-elevation, crystal-clear lakes would help.
