Does anybody have any tips for catching trout with spoons?
DING DING DING!!! I've been using Little Cleo's for a few decades now. You can cover a lot of water with spoons that you can't, with other methods too. And I agree...go slow and low with your spoons.Lil Cleo spoons are my favorite, you can fish them in current or still water. They are extremely versatile little lures. I guess Kastmasters are technically spoons also and I would highly recommend those too. The thing with spoons is that you want to fish them slow, they will start to spin if they go to fast and that isn't really fishing them effectively.
Lots of steelhead techniques can be applied to trout tooDING DING DING!!! I've been using Little Cleo's for a few decades now. You can cover a lot of water with spoons that you can't, with other methods too. And I agree...go slow and low with your spoons.
Getting a copy of this book, will help to get you up to speed.

This is my go to for trout. Thomas Buoyant spoons are the best for trout in my opinion. Can’t go wrong. I strictly use cleos for steelhead, they are the bees knees for steel. I’m pretty sure Thomas’ are cheaper and easy to find in small trout sizes. @troutdude has the best advice, that book is the Bible of spoon fishing. Slow and low baby!
