    Powerbait with lip ripperz hatchery dust is my favorite. The dust is the pellets they use to feed the trout but they grind them up making it perfect to roll the powerbait in. The hatchery dust is a pretty new product that ive only come across online. Ive caught some nice sized trout with green pumkin powerbait rolled in the dust. Also kastmasters and other spoons can be effective as trout tend to school around in a big circle after planted. good luck and happy fishing

      I like a brown rooster tail with a bronze blade. I find that the first week they are stocked they bite best on rooster tails. You might be asking yourself "why brown"? It's because they are fed brown pellets in the hatchery.

        Joes Flies or Mepps spinners. I usually like ones with brown, green, and a little red.

                Canned corn will be hard to beat. Small hook with just a few kernels. The spinners mentioned above all work too although I prefer no tail

                  Kraft American cheese balled on a size 14-16 gold treble hook.

                    I normally put 2 salmon eggs on the end of the hook and put trout turbo powerbait on the rest of the hook, I've caught more trout (of all kinds) doing that than with any other bait
