"There are many ways to catch trout: bait fishing, fly fishing, and even trolling. But my favourite way is with a light spinning (L) rod. On a river, I recommend using spinnerbaits or buzzbait lures and small hard baits. Use different colours, from the most natural to the most fluorescent, like orange or yellow.
Some soft lures filled with attractant substances also work well in lakes. Choose small imitation insects. You can fish by casting, or trolling using a spinnerbait in front."
