The brook trout in small streams grow good quality water, holding fast pools and seem shallow compared to pools of brown trout. They are very aggressive and relatively easy to catch. Usually they are smaller than the browns and rainbows. In large and medium streams them are near the head and the main sources of water.

Brown trout (Europe) is the most abundant and most sought after trout in streams. They are cautious and should be stalked patiently. His shadow in the water will cause them to go to the bottom. They require banks covered as deep or fallen trees. They can be found in deep pools, and go to the shallows to feed in the early morning and evening. They feed on insects such as flies and mosquitoes. Brown trout can grow much larger than the rainbow and brook.

Rainbow trout live in fast water and white water flows, using different habitats brown trout. Famous for its acrobatics, the rainbow is a very exciting fishing.

There are a number of methods used to catch trout, but most novice anglers begin to learn to fish for trout on light spinning using bait for bass.

Fishing spoon or “spinning” is possibly the best technique.

It is a system that requires much skill at launch, as we are to “put” the spoon in places where we think you can find a trout. Often these are under some branches or between stones and roots, thus the risk of losing the team is far superior to other fishing techniques.

Teaspoons may be rolling or rotating, and a maximum weight of 4 g. circular shaped. Colors can be varied: white, black, red, green, gold and silver. They can also use artificial fish no more than 4 cm. and leaded.


Study the current  – If you understand and know the movements of water from a river or stream trout you can find very easily on the move. Deep pools created by currents can save a large trout, but also smaller trout. The large trout are likely to be in these pools during sunrise and sunset.

Live bait is better – certainly worms are an effective bait for catching trout, along with minnows and crayfish. A good trick is to take a look at what lives on the edge of where you are fishing and see what might attract a trout.

Choose your lure wisely – It is important to choose the right lures. Using the wrong type could make you miss opportunities. Fortunately, there are some brands on the market that do a great job. Lake trout bite a little love lure called “Silver Spoon” or silver spoon.
