    small gold colored spoons have worked best for me, tied directly to the line, no swivel. Cast diagonally upstream and slowly retieve across the current. In deeper pools i'll sometimes flip the rod tip up and down while retrieving so it swims up then falls, like jigging but still retrieving line gently.

      Little Cleos, Krokodiles, Tasmanian Devils. Fish them up and across the current with just enough retrieve to keep the line taught.
      Or, tie on a spoon, remove the hook, add 18 inches of line, and a bait-holder with a nightcrawler on it. Fling that out into the lake and see what happens.

        Little Cleos and small Dardevils. The Dardevils come in so many sizes and colors.

          Little Cleos work great and they are lead free so you can use them anywhere. I usualy tie them right to the line, but if you are worried about twisting you line you can tie a barrel swivel about 18 inches up.

            castmasters in copper and in blue/silver work good as do classic daredevils. Phoebes also work very good on brook trout

              The three colors, Copper, Gold, Silver, all work well. I use the Al's Goldfish in gold or copper colors with good success.
