    Mepps spinners. Rooster tails have always worked good for me. If not those you can make your own. Google Jim Bedford he makes his own.

      Rooster tails. I love the yellow ones for brown trout, I have tried several other lures, but none have out competed the yellow rooster tail. My second favorite would have to be blue fox vibrex copper color. Also seems to work great for brown trout, and does a little bit better in faster water.

        I love Panther Martin's, but overall, I've caught more trout w/ Rooster Tails. I keep a vast, and I mean VAST collection of both in my tacklebox, cuz trout are finicky buggers.

          everybody uses spinners but i really think that copper castmasters are the best lures ever for trout of all species. All you need are a few different sizes for them then hold on tight!

              i drift and twitch small gulp! minnows. It avoids snags and the trout really nail em.

                  Trout magnets and berkley gulp worms on a trout magnet hook are good for stocked trout, also pins minnows work good in stocked streams as well. If you are fishin in a larger stream or river that holds bigger trout, try a lucky craft pointer american shad pattern, or a smithwick rogue in a silver pattern. Big browns wear em out.

                    The Fish Catcher is a great brass lure. Catches trout when nothing else does.

                        lucky lady artificial cheese worm, use a very small hook and two bb size split shots. tear the cheese worm in half and insert the small hook in where you tore the worm. pull the hook out on the flat side of the worm like your fishin a jig. reel slowly an twitch it across the pool any way. trout love em

                          The berkley trout worms in pink and the yo-zuri crstal minnows 3in. size both work wonders on trout and also bring out the big stuborn ones as well.

                                For steelhead, my no. 1 lure is an about 2 in. storm minnow imitation in shad pattern. It almost always produces strikes for me and last year, I caught a 28 incher with it.
