Living in New Mexico for many years, I have UL trout fished a lot. I have many UL spin rods the latest is a Pfluger President on an Okuma Celilo 7' (2 piece) $60 rod for more open water. For brushy and rocky stream/rivers I like a 5-6' UL like the ST Croix Panfish UL rods for $99. Use one piece UL rods in the 5-6' range. Anything I can toss a small jig or spinner a long distance with 1-4# test mono. I also have some inexpensive rods for the really rough fishing, hiking and wading in serious mountain streams so getting a broken rods isn't so heart breaking. There use to be some daiwa one piece 5' UL rods that were really inexpensive I have four of those.
