Rooster tails work pretty well when I've tried it. The Berkley Power Bait made for trout used to work extremely well when I was a kid, but I'm not even sure they make it still.

When they stocked NW River, Id use the power bait with a split shot about 8" up the line just to keep it off the bottom a little. Worked well for the most part, just not very exciting

also at lake accotink the trout are released into a very small stream area so its basically a slaughterfest- cast and catch type of deal but at lake fairfax its realeased into a 18 acre lake- will these methods still work in a larger body of water?

Sweet corn. On a double drooper. Usually the top hook that gets them. At the Lakes in richmond it's a one rod limit, so be careful of baiting and casting at the same time.
Wish I knew what the pellets they feed the trout look like.

Designated Stocked Trout Waters
"Designated stocked trout waters" include those waters that are stocked with harvestable-sized trout and are listed by the Director in the annual Trout Stocking Plan (PDF). These waters will only be considered designated stocked trout waters from October 1 through June 15 (trout license required). A trout license is not required from June 16 through September 30. Trout angling hours on designated stocked trout waters are from 5:00 a.m. until one hour after sunset. See exceptions for Trout Heritage Waters (below), Urban Program Waters (below) and Pay-As-You-Go Trout Fishing. Designated stocked trout waters are posted by the Department with appropriate "stocked trout waters" signs.

It is unlawful to fish in designated stocked trout waters after the daily creel limit of trout has been obtained or during the closed hours for taking trout. Once a trout is taken into possession by placing in the creel (basket, bucket, stringer, cooler, etc.) it becomes part of the daily creel limit and may not be released (culled). It is unlawful to feed, bait or snag trout in designated stocked trout waters. It shall be unlawful for any person fishing in designated stocked trout waters to use more than one rod, one line, and one baited hook (a treble hook is considered one hook); however, any combination of artificial lures is allowed. It shall be unlawful to use seines and nets in designated stocked waters, except that a hand-landing net to land fish legally hooked may be used in all waters. :eek:

Berkeley Powerbait makes a "stock trout food pellet" flavor. Used to do great on it if you hit em within a day or two of stocking.

It looks like little dogfood kibbles.
