I'm going to get some trout magnets soon and possibly try the bubble float method. Any other suggested lures are welcome.

It's pretty tough to beat a 1/8oz Little Cleo around here. If I'm not fishing one of those, then I'm using a homemade or Turner Jones micro jig under a bobber.

1/8 rooster tail but to pick just one color... Don't know if I would go green. In the summer I like a yellow and black or mustard yellow and black rooster. Winter I been doing ok on black rooster tail , with ultra violet highlights in the tail. The hair or tail on the rooster is very eye catching for the trout. But to each his own. Also the lighter rooster tails don't sink as fast,

I go to West Virginia every June. I wish there were freshwater trout here :(.

What kind of trout and what type of water?

Rainbow, Brown, Brook, and maybe even Golden. There is a stream that has all 4 and a lake that has the first 3.

I like roster tails, Kastmasters and mepps. No bigger that 1/8 oz. use the 1/16 if you can cast it far enough. As far as color is concerned I go white, black or chartreuse.

It really depends on what the fish are eating at the time and that would determine what I use. In some cases when I'm combat fishing with 20 people stuffed together in 20 feet of space (which happens more and more often) the distance you can cast your presentation out there will be the greatest determining factor in how many fish you catch. 

 

Not really knowing the area my preference would probably be the spinners first. If I can get the casting distance I would use the 1/16 first for a less disruptive presentation which I would hope would increase my fish count in the long term. I would then work my way up to the 1/8, the spoon and finally use the jig. 

 

Two lures that you can use and have been greatly effective to me are Kastmasters with added flash and Tasmanian Devils. You can also use a weighted clear bobber with a fly if that's what the fish are feeding on. 

 

Probably more important are three ideas for you to consider.

1. Hook selection and maintenance: I have also found that it's extremely important to make sure to sharpen your hooks before and after each outing and to use wide gap treble hooks, single sickle hooks, or if you can do nothing else just slightly bend your hook outward. It can make a huge difference between a bite and a hookup and losing a fish vs. landing one. 

2. Value Added Attractant: Adding additional flash (additional color to suit the environment), bait (piece of worm), scent (long lasting garlic scent, etc...) or action (bending the spoon or replacing the spinner blades to create more of a desired action) can have a big impact on the amount of fish you catch. 

3. In your situation I would probably use bait first. 

 

Also, learning to read the water, and being able to identify and understand the environmental variables are just as important.

Jig. Jig it as much as you can while keeping it at the right depth letting it drift in the current. I usually do 6-12" hops while following it with my rod and watching for the line to jump or stop on the fall. Ideally you want the fish to be directly in front of you or slightly downstream of you when making this presentation.
