I can't help you with 2-3 lbers. I only manage to catch stockers!
Are you fly fishing, using spinning gear or trying to ice fish?
If you want to catch some nice fish and don't have the time to learn the waters you should really hire a guide.
Randy Ford, "Fordo" on the forum, should be able to help you out.
