Here at the City Lake they placed another 2500 on the 14th last week. I have been two days in arow, nothing. 0 catch.
Fishing on bottom, under cork at different depths. Tried little inline spinners. Used corn, worms, and small marshmellows.
All line downsized to 4lb flurocarbon.
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks

Nothing,they are very hard to catch.I have watched 30-40 different people including myself using everything and striking out.However,I have found putting the corn in a bag and putting garlic powder in it works great.When all else fails,I have seen success with minnows.

See my blog on how to catch the little Rainbow trout. While nothing is fail safe this method has worked for many.
Click here.

None of the baits you have tried work well. The blog will help you.

When I was stationed at Ft Knox, Ky there was a stream that was stocked with rainbows. The only thing they would bite was the Kraft garlic squeeze cheese in the small Bologna shaped tubes. I tried to make my own garlic cheese, but they wouldn't touch it.

If they are fed those brown pellets, use that power bait. Also white corn with some anise oil may catch some. I noticed that a pond/lake that has a lot of pressure the trout will hit something "new" try a pistol pete. smile

But here in NM, put a sinker on the bottom, a snelled hook 10" up and put corn and salmon eggs combo, 12" above that another snelled hook and put a real worm. Little marshmellows, velveta cheese are some of the things people use here too. Fish off the bottom here 90% of the time.

Try Berkley power worms. I use the worms, powerbait, Mikes floating, & corn mostly. Even crappie jigs work well at times. Color seems to be the key with trout. Floats work best on cloudy days with a little wind. Catching those buggers can involve a lot of experimenting. After they have been in the pond a while I will use small minnows also. Trout normally relate to the bottom so I usually tight line with as light a weight as possible. The problem with some of the lakes around Dallas is they are too big. I do best in the smaller ones. Water flowing in is definitely a good spot to be.
