Sounds like you're referring to Power bait. You can catch trout on that, but I'd suggest using Panther Martins... get a range of colors/flourescents and stream fish... bright shiny ones on bright days... darker colors, less shiny ones on overcast days.
Cast upstream and drag those spinners across slow pools, get ready for some fun. I'm afraid I'm not the guy to suggest a location, but I know stream fishing with Panthers.
I wish you luck, and do please take pictures and post them here.
