Default Need Advice

I've fished saltwater primarily throughout my life, and have recently taken up fishing in Colorado. I have really good luck at monument , but have gone to Antero and Eleven mile and blanked.. If anyone can give me any advice or is interested in meeting somewhere and fishing it would be greatly appreciated. Im primarily trying to catch bigger trout, but I'm not picky. I don't have a boat- only shorefish for the time being! Thanks!

Bigger trout = jerkbaits and tube jigs.

Medium to small trout = metal lures and powerbait.

Not to rain on Riv's parade, but you are in Colorado, and when in Colorado and fishing for trout, it's best done on a flyrod, with smaller than normal bugs.

I have caught a few trout in Colo, fly and hardware, and I have to say the biggest ones (up to 18lbs.) have all been on big jerkbaits or plugs. Pellet fish and shrimp pigs would be the exception.

if you want the small fish, up to 5lbs a worm under a bobber is hard to beat on one rod then bower bait on your other rod. this will work good at the mile and antero

Thanks for the suggestions guys! I will try all. I've been using the "Trout Ninja" setup and mainly powerbait. So I am definitely open! Any other pointers or suggestions are greatly appreciated.. Thanks

use a circle hook itll make release easier.
or a fly and water bobber with leader always does good if you can get a real with no weeds.
