Most likely will be heading to YellowStone, Grand Teton and Glacier National Parks in mid September.

What would be a decent rod for throwing spinners for trout out there?

What are your favorite spinners for trout?

Thanks for your help.

Don't overlook the use of small spoons for trout. I use them almost exclusively for trout in Western MD rivers - Youk, North Branch, Casselman, etc. I outfish my spinner-only friends at least 5-1. 1/4 oz or less would work for ultralight applications with a 50/100 sized reel and light mono/fluroro line. My favs are gold/red, silver/blue, and silver/orange although rainbow trout colors has taken some nice trout as well. Last year I hammered the trout in the North Branch at Barnum including five trout that were in the 20-25" range.

Spoons rock!
