Best Lures for Trout Fishing

Whether you are in a lake, river or stream, fishing for trout is one of the most popular pastimes in North America. Not so long ago, the favorite bait of trout anglers was fat, juicy earthworms. However, a variety of lures have proven to be versatile and effective at landing great catches worthy of trophies, bragging rights or dinner plates. The only problem is understanding which lure works best in various locations and conditions, but a few simple tips can help you in your selection.

Spoon Lures
Even though spoons have a simple design, they are very effective when it comes to hooking large trout. However, they work best when fishing deep waters, whether it is a river, stream or lake. These lures are heavy and sink quickly, so you need to start reeling them in right away. If a spoon hits bottom, it may drag or snag.

When fishing early in the season, look for a spoon that is heavy but less than an inch in length to attract trout. If the water is relatively clear, you will want to use one with natural colors, but if the water is cloudy, try a spoon that is silver or chrome on one side and fluorescent orange, green or yellow on the other.

Inline or Weighted Spinners
Spinners also work very well for catching trout, but there is such a wide variety that you have to choose carefully. Many anglers believe that spinners made to look like small fish with colors similar to that of trout are the most effective. However, gold, copper and silver are also popular choices. In addition, it is believed that hooks hidden in fur or faux fur tend to catch more trout than bare hooks.

It is a common belief that spinners work best in lakes that have been newly stocked with trout, but many anglers have experienced success with these lures in rivers and lakes supporting natural-born trout. When fishing with spinners, try to cast your line upstream or slightly up and across. Then, reel the lure in slowly just as it reaches downstream. Some anglers prefer to bait their spinning lures with small earthworms or red worms.

Stick Baits, Crank Baits and Jerk Baits
Stick bait, crank bait and jerk bait are usually used for catching bass, but they can work well with rainbow trout and other trout species as long as you know how to use them, which can take a while to learn. These types of lures look like minnows or other small fish. They are lightweight and float on or just below the surface of the water. Some anglers try to sink these lures a little deeper by using weights, but this can be dangerous because they are prone to snags.

One popular practice is to bring a selection of these lures when trout fishing but reserve them as backups. When other lures fail to catch anything, crank baits, jerk baits or stick baits may come through.

Rubber Jigs
Experienced trout anglers rarely use rubber jigs, but they have been known to catch some decently sized fish. Rubber jigs work best in shallow creeks with clear water and a moderate current. It is recommended that you attach a small float to your line to adjust the depth of the lure when it is in the water.

River fishing is one of the most entertaining and exciting types of fishing there is, but one thing about it is certain: River fish can be crafty and hard to catch.

Efficient Fishing

Get Organized, Catch More Fish
Managing tackle in a manner that engenders efficiency is no easy matter. But it's one of the most important things you can do to put more fish in the boat on every trip.

"Whether you're prepping for a trip or out on the water, scrambling to find lures, pliers or other gear wastes time and costs you fish," says veteran guide and obsessive organizer Bernie Keefe. "Investing a little time and effort to organize tackle eliminates such headaches and makes you an efficient fishing machine."
