Re: Egg Patterns for stocked trout?
Never fished egg patterns in stillwaters before. You might want to Google/try some Chironomid patterns... Snow Cones are a very popular (and effective) pattern for fishing below indicators. These patterns imitate the rising midge pupae found in freshwater lakes. Not the most exciting fishing on earth, but it works.
Don't worry about imitating Power Bait. Stocked trout wise up pretty quick to the food that's available to them.
Otherwise I prefer something that has some movement to it (Wooly Bugger, streamer, soft hackle, swimming nymph, etc.).
