    Try live bait if you are allowed to! If it's artificial only try lures with rattles or that are brightly colored.

      In addition to the above, when it comes to using lures/spinners, try something that moves alot of water. Blue Fox spinners come to mind for me in those conditions.

        I'll be out tomorrow too. I'll be fishing big beaded nymphs (size 10's even 8's). No matter what you're fishing, look for eddy lines and such where trout will hold. Even though I'll be fishing a creek which is more a small river than a creek, I'll do a lot of fishing within a few feet of the bank tomorrow. Trout tend to hold in eddys right up at the bank in high water and you have to think small steam fishing in terms of presenting lures or bait to them.

          look for little eddies out of the main current if its stronger than normal. The fish will often lay in the slower water where food falls out of the water column and they don'y need to use as much energy until the water goes back to normal.

            One of my best days fishing ever for trout was with a white rooster tail in a flooded stream in a downpour. Chartreuse works too on occasion for me in muddy water.
