Trout and Salmon bait

Recommended Posts

I fish a local lake during the cooler seasons for stocked trout and broodstock salmon. I, as well as many other anglers, have great luck with floating PowerDough and PowerEggs for the stocked rainbows. I have caught a couple of browns on rapala minnows, and some salmon with spoons and a rapala plug.

Does anyone know any other bait rigs for trout and salmon(not including the powerbait rig). I know I can nab the freshly stocked and maybe some holdovers with the floating powerbait, but I would like to target the browns and salmon with bait. Any advice would be appreciated. Would a simple bobber/slip float rig work with a small minnow, worm, grub(for the trout)? I have heard of a modified Carolina rig with live bait on the end left to swim, but I'm afraid the baitfish will just find a place to hide, and the worm/grub would just get lost in bottom rocks/weeds.

inline spinners are always a good choice

The sweet kernel corn will work best on hatchery born stock but I would definately go with an in line spinner with a chunk of crawler on it. Going salmon fishing today.....wish me luck. Dry flies and nymphs work exceptional on the spawning salmon.
