Italo for Brook trout during the summer months, what tactics would you use and what bait/lure would be most effective? Thanks

Hi Giacomo…If you are fishing streams, the best technique is to drift small garden worms through deeper pools, rapids, log-jams and undercut-banks.  If you are fishing a lake for them, it can be very challenging since brook trout can suspend at various depths depending on water temperature and available food.  One of the best ways to locate & catch brook trout in lakes during the summer time, is to troll.  A popular rig is to use a 3-4″ long wobbling spoon as a flasher (remove the treble hook and add a second split-ring and swivel to the spoon).  To do this, take a spoon and tie it in-line about 24-36″ up from a single hook.  The spoon wobbles and attracts brook trout from a distance, and once they get close, they zero-in on the hook and worm…God bless you, Italo
