Baits for stocked trout

Recommended Posts

Anyone had any luck using baits such as the Berkley Power nuggets for trout? I live near a lake that has been stocked with mostly rainbows for more than a dozen years. The water is clear and spring fed but very weedy. Doesn't really ever seem to major hatches to fish so I need to resort to other tactics. Used to catch a few on tube baits while fishing crappies, but they were few and far between. Was online at Cabelas and there a lots of baits similar to the Power bait I mentioned. Any info. guys? Thanks.

Trout love power baits. Both power nuggets and power twisters.

Fish the nuggets under a bobber over deep water on bright days. A good depth finder will show you what depth there at.
Also look for them near the weedline early and late in the day, or on cloudy days.

How would you tell how deep they are if you're fishing a shore-fishing only lake?

Thanks. About what temperature do you think they'll be hanging out in? Surface temp in some waters around here has been low-mid 70's.
Knowing this will probably help me choose the temp.

I would say somewhere in the mid-50's would be ideal.

Low 70's is way to warm!

Trout become stressed when the water stays above 65 degrees and will die if they stay in 70 degree water for too long.

Use a slip bobber and just keep lowering your bait until you connect with a trout.

If you use a spoon or jigs count them down.

Renneberg - Thanks for the reply, will give the power bait a try.

I'll start at 10 feet and work my way down from there. I knew temp was a big factor with trout just wasn't sure how big. Maybe I can somehow tie my extra aquarium thermometer to the line and take temp at various depths.

    • Yep, it was good again.
    • Do they all have the same issues?  If they do, then probably not the roku, although rebooting them by unplugging the power for a minute or so might be worth a try, if you haven't already done so. 
    • I do not have a Chromecast.  I will try the Comcast fix first then work my way to the hardware.  I have two roku streaming stick + and one roku streaming stick.
    • I have my Garmin Astro 360 that works well enough along with dog tracking.   I have used my smart phone on a large loop walk through private and tax forfeited land.   The accuracy was pretty darn good.   Superimpose over satellite imagery on a generic mapping program and you can see right where you are and set course around areas you want to avoid.   Battery drain is pretty strong.   I also prefer to keep my eyes up and gain sight knowledge of an area so that future use of electronics becomes a back up and not a crutch.
    • Is fishing Cenaiko worth doing in late June and July? I’ve never really trout fished before and I want to give it a try. If it’s worth fishing, how would you fish the lake? I have an ultralight setup with #1 and #0 Mepps spinners but I have a feeling that wouldn’t work well trying to pull Trout out of a lake. Any tips? 
    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?
