Trolling for Trout

Trolling for Trout
As spring arrives also trout fishing will be on the top of many anglers list of things to do this spring. Fishing for trout is generally done on streams and rivers, but I have found that you can catch some real monster trout in the lakes that trout streams feed into. Many streams especially here in my home state of Pennsylvania have trout streams that dump into a lake and often these lakes are stocked with trout as well as the stream being stocked with trout.

Trout will migrate to the lake during the summer months due to the comfort of the deep water and surplus of food. This leads to monster trout residing in these lakes that feed heavily in deeper waters on minnows and bugs on top of the water. One key way of targeting these trout is to troll for them using spinners, spoons, and flies. All you need is a boat and an electric trolling motor to effectively troll for trout. Any rod and reel will do but I have found a few tricks that will make your day of trolling for trout more successful.
