Still water, if it's a rocky bottom I like to simply jig them slowly.
If it's weedy, I'll use a float to keep it above them.

Drift boat on the river, I like cast and twitch them as we drift along.
Can do the same thing from the bank or run a sliding float to make quick depth adjustments...

I caught some pretty nice browns on an eastern Oregon stream while jigging for small mouth bass.
I was quite surprised at the first one to hit!

I use 3/8 and 1/2 oz jigs to twitch for coho salmon...they hate them!

Copy the coho twitchin. Done well on steelhead with jigs under a bobber too. Have to get some small jigs for trout

Judman,
I’m always surprised when it happens, but I’ve caught several steelhead while twitching for coho salmon.
The steelies really try to kill it and I’ve wondered if they take it for a crayfish....

Both methods work depending on the conditions. You can pretty much use the same jig tactics used for steelhead for trout, just downsize your gear and tackle some.

I tight line alot but some situations call for a float. Have separate reel/rod combos for both.


Hell, I was there too! (for the most part anyways)

In most waters crayfish, sculpins and bait/baby fish make up the bulk menu for big trout but not always. That's the nice thing about custom jigs, you can play with different combos just like the fly fisher folks do.

Judman,

As for favorite jig color/patterns it really depends on the time of year, water conditions and a bunch of other variables. What works in one area may not work as well in others.

For rainbows in my area orange/browns usually work well. Some days olive/tans or olive/browns work well. Cutts seem to favor white or green/white ime. Browns seem to like anything natural that is not too flashy or disco - black, browns, purple, olives, white even yellows. We have a few runs of steelhead here though I've never targeted them (small window in different sections), they say cerise/white works well.

Hint, always pay attention to those folks and what they're using.

What size and color Super Dupers?
Lakes or rivers
How do you "fish" them?

This tread is humbling. I grew up with a fishing pole in my hand. The Roaring Fork river literally ran though our front yard. I caught my share of trout with 3 lures. A Mepps, Panther Martin, and an occasional red and white Daredevle spoon. I didnt know that trout would bite anything else. 67 years old and am still learning.

Good how to video on that knot. I might have missed something but it looks exactly like the "Crazy Alberto Knot" that I've been using. IRegardless of the name it's a good small leader to braid knot.

The flashy jigs are exactly what I use for coho. Sized 3/8 or 1/2oz, depending on depth and current. The second pic is FULL of trout killers! I need to start tying my own....
