During periods of cool water in May and June, Speckled Trout feed along shorelines in very shallow water and can be taken by casting towards overhanging tea brush using light spinners baited with night crawlers. Using flies on the surface during calm periods in fly season can be very successful as well. Later in the season, best results are achieved by the use of baited spinners in cool areas such as near logs, rocks, springs and waterfalls. Baited hooks are successful in deep waters on many occasions.
Some of the most popular lures for Speckled Trout include Panther Martins, Abu Reflex, #1 Mepps and most other bright spinners tipped with night crawlers.
