Finished my "Honey do" list and headed out to Centennial Park. Caught my limit of trout in a little over an hour.
One came on a trout minnow under a pencil bobber. The others came on yellow power bait floating off the bottom. #14 trebble, power bait with a little piece of styrafoam imbedded in it, 10" off the bottom. Key was to make sure it was a small piece of bait. Had a good time.

Afterwards went down to the Sterling/Rock falls lower dam and cast around. I'm still learning how to "feel" baits in a river. Quite an art. Had a local show me a few tricks on how to "snap the line" to get a jig unstuck. Had something on for a few minutes that had my rod bent and straightened the hook. All and all a good day fishing.
Good luck!

Tasty :) When I see a mess of trout like that, the only thing going through my mind is butter.

Im thinking more in the line like apple wood, honey,cracked pepper, salt and brown sugar for the smoker. Those little buggers are like candy.
