    Depends on your trout/forums/images/icons/wink.gif. Up in these parts I've had a lot of success with Panther Marten spinners. I would also consider using a Len Thompson spoon, either a Red Devil or an orange and black Five of Diamonds. Kamloopers work nicely as well. For deeper holes I use a Rapalla Countdown RT-5. The Bow River is primarily a Brownie river, but there's the odd Rainbow and lots of smaller Brookies.

    Whatever lure you use, tie right to the lure and don't use swivels or leaders- they scare fish. A 6lb line is adequate, but just in case I would step up to 8 lbs. Go for Spiderwire.

    I'm not a fishing king, but I'm on the river at least twice a week so I kinda know my stuff by now. In fact last week, I caught myself a lovely 2 1/2 lb Brown./forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Get ahold of me if you need any clarification. I kinda assumed you've already fished, amd if not saome of what I wrote above may seem Greek/forums/images/icons/wink.gif!!!

    What the hell is a Kamlooper? KastMasters work well too. I get tired of the powerbait fishing.

    Pretty deep question for me. I have quite a full tackle box. Never know what they want to eat. I will generally tray for 1/2 hour before trying something else.

    Ok, I'm sharing a secret. I have a small can of WD-40 in my box that I occasionally use for bait scent.

    I've heard bass like hay. You throw a bale of hay where your gonna fish. Apparently they have a sweet tooth for it.

    That would be chumming. I do not suggest that.

    I love spiderwire. I have got snagged, and when I got loose, the hook was straightened out. That stuff don't break. Casts real nice too.

    An old crank telephone with the wires into the water works pretty good.

    yea I've fished - I've figured out the bass (in the only lake withing 200 miles that has bass), but the trout still have me stumped (lake fishing).

    for spinners I use blue fox, and have had them hit better then panther martin, or meps.

    tried using red devils, and I've never even had a bite on them.

    I can't find kamloopers anywhere - so I have idea what that is.

    I haven't tried spiderwire, but have heard lots of good stuff about it.

    so, if you were bait fishing how would do you guys rig your lines?

    If I have a floating bait, I use about 2-1/2' to 3' of leader. Use floating bait where there is alot of weeds and such so your bait stays above it all. With non floating bait, I only use about 1' of leader. Wheight depends on what keeps it on the bottom. I use a swivel between my leader and main line to prevent tangles. I also like the sliding wheights.

    I went this weekend and we used corn and worms. My dad caught 17 nice trout in 2 days. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I didn't catch a thing! /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
