that are probably better than the Kastmasters...

It depends a bit on what kind of waters you're fishing. But if you are fishing streams or rivers, I'd never use Kastmasters or other heavy spoon-type lures, though they are good for lakes.

For rivers...small in-line spinners, like Mepps, Rooster Tails, or Panther Martins. Small diving crankbaits like the Rapala Shad-Raps. 2-3.5 inch long minnow imitating lures like floating and Countdown Rapalas, or suspending lures like the Lucky Craft Pointer (expensive but good). All but the Pointer are fished simply by casting and reeling them in, but the Pointer is fished by reeling for a couple feet and pausing, reeling and pausing. All are easy to fish and all will catch all kinds of trout in rivers and streams.
