halibuthitman;
Wow, I couldn't name much of anything in my tackle box with their technical names. You guys amaze me with your ability to remember which gear you used at which hole on a given day. I hope you are as good at remembering birthdays,anniversaries and what have you. Maybe if I had a different tackle box for each one, nah, I'd still have trouble. Maybe it's that "sometimers" like my Mom used to joke about. :think: :lol: Be safe.

Trout, right? Haven't fished OR yet, but what I would choose based on experience elsewhere:

Spinners: none

Spoons: none

Other:
1. 1/32 #8 white zonker gold flash tinsel jig for still water.
2. 1/16 #4 black zonker gold flash tinsel jig for small streams
3. 1/8 #2 grey zonker holo flash tinsel jig for bigger moving water or deep still water.

Steelhead or big brownies would be a separate ball game.

I just fish store bought panfish jigs, white or black, for everything and they seem to catch any fish that are available to be caught, but for kamloops or lakers I use white marabou jigs becouse they seem to outperform plastic for them.

Spinners:
#3 Blue Fox/Gold, #3 Blue Fox/Rainbow, and #3 Silver w/ blue body.

Spoons:
Needlefish trolling spoon in Rainbow trout, blue/silver little cleo, and any silver/gold spoon.

Misc:
-3" SEDUCER WORMS!!(These things catch more trout then Powerbait!)
-Nightcrawlers
-Micro steelhead jigs

But what seriously catches me more trout than anything, and what I use more then anything, are pink worms! Also those Berkely trout worms in pink/white SLAY trout.
