      Spinning reel with panfish jigs and spinners
    9. garrett weiss 0
      Use small spinning reel on ultra light rod 4lb test is what I use worms work and roaster tails also small cast masters or grasshopper lures
    10. David Willson 0
      Thanks guys @bomber1 and @TennesseeTroutboy I hope to catch some!
    11. TennesseeTroutboy 0
      No I wouldn't use a baitcaster, trout have small mouths so they can't eat many bass baits. Small crankbaits, spoons, spinners, and tiny plastics would work
    12. Edward Pease Bomber1 0
      I would use 6 lb line. I like to use silver super dupers for trout. Panther martins are effective as well. I've heard of people catching trout on Rapalas as ...more well

      Jermy Wade actually catches one of these in one of his episodes and if I'm not mistaking its from the same Po River in Italy... I bet theirs big ones like that ...more in our river systems here in the US.
