I'm a newcomer and I know a lot of anglers like to keep their fishing techniques to themselves. I was just hoping to get some input on what technique or rigs people use for fishing trout? My first trip to Hempstead Lake is this coming weekend(if weather permits) and I indeed to try my luck at any surviving trout left from the recent restocking in Nassau County.

So far I am equiped with some basic lures, but I'd like to know what kind of rigs are used and also and bait recipes.
P.S what type of fishing line is used or has proven to be an asset to use against trout? I have Fireline & a generic line both hold about 4-6lbs.

Those stockies love Super Dupers



Also Velveta cheese on a small treble hook underneath a small float are hard for them to resist.

It's been a long time, but..

We used to fish for stocked rainbows all the time when I was a kid. The spoon that worked for us was the trusty old Daredevle, in the 1/4 or 3/16 oz size. Good luck.:beerchug:

Is it suppose to be easier fishing for stocked trout?
If you're there the day of or a day or two after the truck dumps them in they're pretty much easy pickings. If you're not they're pretty much gone.:(

I think the idea of them stocking is for the kids to have some fun.

Stockers ...

Salmon eggs on small hook.

Tip: Buy a new jar each year.
Add a teaspoon of sugar to the new jar.

What the sugar does is toughen the skins on the egg, keeping them on the hook better. AND stockers are usually fed diets (now this is west coast talking, but I assume the right coast is the same) consisting of sugar, so they get a 'sweet tooth'.
