Hey all, new fisherman here. I have a question about a new rod purchase. I live near stagecoach reservoir and as you know, there are some large pike in there.

Could someone recommend a rod for trout, that will also handle a pike if I hook one?

I mainly fish for trout, so I have been looking at ML, or M Fast/XF 6'6 t 7' rods
4-10 or 6-12 pound test rating.

Thanks

LOL, remember this rod is mostly for trout. I want a spinning rod, my budget is 150 or less
Will be using spinners like PM, Mepps, lures like Rapala Original, Countdown, Berkley power bait

OK, go get a St Croix, G Loomis, Cousins, Daiwa, Shimano, etc... Don't forget Dobyns, Megabass, Evergreen, and Jackall. :biggrin1: Looks like you'll be throwing mostly light tackle. For below $150, I'd take a good look at the Shimano Compre. Maybe a 7 ft in MH action. You won't need the MH action for the lures you are throwing but if this is for pike, I'd get it in case you decide to throw slightly heavier lures. St Croix Premiers are OK too. The new G Loomis E6X felt pretty good in my hand if you are willing to spend a little more.
For sure, Dobyns Savvy is on my list, the rods I have been looking at are:

13Fishing Omen Black
Daiwa Tatula, Procyon
Fenwick HMG, HMX
Lewis Speedstick
Phenix Maxim
Dobyns Savvy
Powell Diesel, Inferno, Max 3D
St Croix Triumph, triumph X, Premier
Elk River Customs ER1

I'm not a noob as in never ever. I grew up salt water fishing in and off Virginia, Trout fishing in OR, I meant I'm new here.

I like nice things, I try to buy the best I can with what I can afford.

I've been out of the fishing world for a while, that's why I wanted some suggestions, last time I looked at rods you could still buy fiberglass, LOL

LOL, don't fly fishermen spend obscene amounts to fish for trout
