are you in a lake or stream?

I catch lots of them in lakes with bobbers, a chartruse flu-flu and a whole night crawler hooked in the middle....

I usually start 35 feet down in 55 feet of water and my kids start at 18 feet down and we adjust from there.

Stream. We will have to take 4 wheelers back about 3-5 miles to get at the good fishing, but I am hoping no one else ever goes back there as it is pretty remote.

I can't help you then. all I have done is lake resident trout in Big Watab in Stearns county and I fish them the same way I fish catfish. a bobber and a beer, the wife drives and the kids do the rest.

then I clean them and smoke them.....

I would try a couple different small spinners like a panther martin or a vibrax. Cast upstream and reel back down. Bring it by submerged rocks or other things fish might sit behind in the stream. Also look for deeper pools that might hold some trout. And try to bring your lure where the current and some slack water meet.

Good luck, I hope you get some fish on your line.

I tried stream trout fishing for the first time a few weeks ago, didn't catch anything...but I'm gonna take another crack at it today, and this weekend too. I'll be trying to fly-fish, and make an attempt at nymphing or throwing a grasshopper, and bringing a spinning setup too.

I'm wondering what time of day is best to stream trout fish, or does it even matter, and also if sunny vs. overcast matters at all?

I have gotten more stream/river trout on spinners than any other lure. I'm a big fan of anything made by blue fox.

    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all. 
    • I did cut off the radish tops and they do taste like radish but I am not going to get in the business of growing them..
    • Nice overreaction. Did you have too much caffeine today?   Nobody said or implied that the world would be better off without the united States.    What I did say was the world would be better off if we were not destabilizing governments and taking out the leaders that kept these radicals in check.    Where do you think all the refugees that are heading to Europe and here are coming from? They are coming largely from areas where we deposed, removed or destabilized the government in their home country. Do you think this is some kind of coincidence?   
    • The Shah was there for a long time before the revolution, but yes we had a role in his getting the job.   I don't recall anyone saying that we had a role in the disintegration of Lebanon.   I think that was the peaceful Muslims trying to take the whole place, with input from outside forces.  Syria maybe? 
    • My granny would fricassee them.  Cut-up, season, braise in stock, remove, then add flour and butter to thicken the stock, season to taste, and return the pieces for a few minutes.  If we had a few quail or dove she would add them in as well.  HERE is a really good looking rabbit fricassee with mushrooms, wine and herbs served over pasta.  Would like to try this with chicken drumsticks or wings.
    •   Ding, ding ding, ding! We have a winner. I sensed this was were this thread was heading   It's all America's fault and the world would be a much more peaceful place if America never existed. Why, these people would be the salt of the Earth if it wasn't for the mean and bad USA and throw in Israel in that   "America's Chickenzzz....are coming to home to roost!"   The common denominator is Radicalized Islam. You may not like hearing that but that is the common denominator including in other parts of the world were Radical Muslims cannot seem to get along with their own neighbors including others in their religion that aren't radical enough that have zilch, zero, zip, nada to do with the USA.   No other religion or belief system, I don't care if it's Christianity, Scientology, Paganism, Agnostics, Atheists,ect, has the issues with violence in modern times as Islam does. Spin it anyway you want but the facts cannot be denied.   This massive denial by some of what's sadly and painfully obvious is mind boggling. I get the desire to seem enlightened and non judgemental but that doesn't mean one should deny reality and blame  Fox or Briebart
    • Wonder if it is on Netflix?   Looks like there is actually a good reason to build the wall.....it could help keep the Mexicans out of harms way from drunken South Texas hunters. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/02/19/hunters-charged-in-texas-shooting-had-blamed-immigrants.html
