Estacada Lake has some huge fish. Sure they have legals all over that lake but the fish I see jumping at dusk are trophy size. I have not tried to bottom fish or use spinners there yet but they are in there and some other large fish as well. I never got a clear look at them but they are big. I catch at least a legal or two there but that has been with a bobber. Next time I am going deeper and getting some action.

Welcome to the herd known as the OFFaloes.

Try floating a worm OFF of the bottom, at Estacada. Or, float some Berkley's Power Eggs. Or, use a "slip float" and adjust your depth; and use some salmon eggs or power eggs.

It's hard to tell you where; as you do not mention where you are (or what area you wish to fish).

If I were you I'd head back out to the Sandy and say, "screw the trout, I'm goin after the big boys!"

With that said, check the stocking schedule on the ODFW website and go somewhere within a week of the stocking. There's tons of info on what lures and bait to use in the trout section.
