Spinning trout

The article describes the equipment of a spinning rod for catching river trout. What rod is better to fish, which bait to use? You can find answers to these and other questions in this article.

Spinning trout on the river requires a special approach. The fisherman must responsibly approach the equipment of the gear.

To catch trout on the river, light spinning is required, designed to use baits weighing from 3 to 12 grams. The length of the spinning is selected based on the fishing conditions, and can be from 1.8 to 3 meters. With a short fishing rod it is convenient to cast bait, and a long spinning rod allows you to fish and fish in coastal thickets of grass. In some cases, a fiberglass telescope is excellent, which can be quickly folded and easily overcome dense shrubs or thickets of high vegetation.


The inertialess coil is selected with a gear ratio of 5: 1 or 6: 1. Such a "meat grinder" quickly reels up fishing line, which is especially convenient when posting bait along the river. And the rest of the coil should just work efficiently.

Fishing line

When spinning trout fishing, both monofil fishing line and braid can be used. It is advisable that one spool with fishing line and the other with a braid be included with one reel. It is best to use fluorescent species of woods. Then, in the direction of the fishing line in the water, you can assume the location of the bait and prevent hooks. But to keep an eye on the bait, the spinner will need polarizing glasses. They enable the fisherman not only to see underwater obstacles, but also to observe the bite of the fish.



As a bait for river fishing for trout spinning, turntables, oscillators and wobblers are suitable. Spinners are used in sizes from No. 00 to No. 4. The most popular are spinners No. 1 and No. 2. The main requirement for them is good work on a fast current, here you can read in more detail about turntables.

Among wobblers, models imitating small trout are in demand. Their large fish is probably trying to drive away from its territory, because During one posting, several trout blows occur. In the summer heat, various micro-wobblers 2-3 cm long perfectly catch trout.


Hesitant baits are not so popular when fishing for trout, but their subtlety is not inferior to turntables and wobblers. You need to choose the smallest castmaster or oscillator about 3 cm long.


All trout fishing lures are mounted with a small clasp. With its help, quickly and easily change the bait. It is undesirable to use swivels, as they often break or bend, impairing the play of the bait.
