Eager to eat and easy to catch, trout are an easy ticket if you get in the right spots, where the fish will be 16-21 inches long. With trout, go as light as you've got. Use lures and just prospect an area. Slow wins the game. If the fish are moody and you are moving lures fast, you won't catch any. A slow presentation wins a majority of the time. Subsurface lures like plastic baits on a 1/8-ounce jighead are a great choice. In the right location, which is thick grass of about 2 feet deep, topwater lures tempt the biggest trout. Trout are our most abundant species. It should not be difficult to find them. Concentrate on areas with grass bottom. If you are not into big trout, keep moving. Anglers can possess four trout of 15-20 inches. One of the four can exceed 20 inches.
