Suggestions for trout fishing?
Posted by: old_user on Aug-20-11 5:39 PM (EST)
I'm new to kayak fishing, and trying to figure out what the preferred bait/lures are for trout. I usually bank fish. Have been using Kastmaters, power bait, and grubs. Any suggestions for my initial kayak fishing excursions?

I just hang a lure over the back and troll. Works pretty good. Kastmaster works, Lil Cleo, Phoebe, small minnow plugs and crawfish. Sometimes spinners do great too. This time of year you have to get down deeper or keep near incoming cool water. Good luck.

about location or type of water. For that matter, type of trout either. Stocker rainbows will eat just about anything. Greenback cutthroat are a little more picky. Around here the most successful trout fishermen use flies. If you can't fly fish you might try a fly with a bobber. Use the clear bobber that you can fill with a bit of water for weight but it still can float. Again, the species of trout, time of year, location, and even weather will dictate which fly might be best. I tend to use an imitation of what ever lands on me on my way sneaking up to the creek or beaver pond. The same would hold true for in the kayak. Use the fly like the bug that you find out there.
