Panther Martins (gold spinner, black body with chartreuse spots); Rapala Floater, Countdown for deeper water (rainbow trout pattern) and X-Rap (08) (rainbow trout pattern). Trout can be VERY line shy. Use #4 or #6 fluorocarbon or Yo-Zuri Hybrid on spinning tackle.

make sure you put single hooks on all treble hook lures if you are fishing and no bait in CnR areas. This time of year is good for coventional tackle in some places where there is runoff. Smaller rivers, fly tackle is hard to beat and the only way to fish for trout Imho....Co. fish are smart.... The Frying Pan and boulder creek, The Blue, are only ones I can name off top of my head that I fished last trip. The pan has some monsters but you will trip over them before you can get them to bite. 3lb flourcarbon leaders and size #26 dry flies were what it took to catch fish last time I was there.  

With spinning gear, if the water is low you will need light line, small natrual lures, flourocarbon leaders, and long cast. fishing at dawn/dusk will be better, as night fishing where its possible is much easier.
