Default Re: Stocked trout question ;)

Since a lot of the mountain lakes are snowed in for the winter I fish a lot of stocker trout in the desert lakes. I find almost any bead head nymph works best. Sometimes a tandem rig works, sometimes a single nymph with a bit of weight to get it deep fast. I've also put on a semi seal leach and strip it fast, trout think it is a bait fish.

A 5 wt setup is good, I generally use my 4 wt and 2 wt.

You have to experiment until you find what works best in your area.
