Trolling For Trout

When fishing for trout, trolling could be an excellent means of ensuring that you have a great time in the waters. It is true that trolling fir trout is seasonal but actually depends on what season is best and where. It actually depends on the lake. It could be loads of fun on a bright sunny day with family and friends. There are a few pre requisites of trolling however- you need a boat, motor or oars as a method of propulsion, your fishing rod and reel, a blade string or a troll and lures. The troll and the lures are let out behind the boat, with varying size of the line depending on how deep you want to fish.

While trolling in lakes for trout, you have to fish in the right season of the year. During late spring and until late fall, most layers stratify into three layers. It is the middle layer of the water one can find forage fish due to large amount of dissolved oxygen. Trolling close to the thermo cline or the second layer produces best results- generally 15-50 feet down in most lakes. The forward speed of the boat dictates the speed and the depth at which the entire set up will function. 

While trolling for trout, watch for structures, shelters and covers; fish generally use these as a protection to escape direct sunlight, to feed, to hide from predators, or for spawning. Man made structure, overhanging trees, shade, cliffs, and underwater rocks are most likely to hold fish. Keep a note of the steep banks and troll close to the shore. In this case a depth finder fishing tool will save you a lot of time in locating these hotspots. Fish are also found in abundance near the inlets or outlets of streams as well as in old river channels.


Trout fishing by trolling method also requires you to watch carefully for some surface activity like small baitfish jumping or insect hatches. Crayfish, salamanders, minnows, beetles, surface insects are an integral part of trout’s diet. Areas close to inlet and outlet streams will be in plenty. Grassy shorelines, weedy areas, marshy areas are also good spots. When you are trolling for trout, use winged lures. They are easy to rig, cheap and works like magic.

However in order to make trolling easier there are a few things that you can keep in mind. Troll slowly- and slower the better. Use oars instead of motors. Vary the speed in which you are going. It is important to adjust the speed every few minutes because a food item at a constant speed and constant depth and same vibration pattern will not hold any fish. Another Small tip is to work in an ‘S’ curve, this will help the lures drop deep down when you take the turns slowly. With each turn there will be a different impact on the line and the lure signaling food to the nearby fish.

These above mentioned tips are sure to help you while you are trolling for trout. There must be a reason why many anglers prefer this technique of fishing. It can be enjoyed with the entire family and friends. Good luck and Happy Fishing.
