The "Big Pond" is loaded with salmon, trout, perch, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, carp and more.
Was wondering if anyone can give me tips on fishing for brown and lake trout at Montrose? I'm not good at using spoons and so. My rigs are a bottom rig. A 3 way swivel with a live minnow. And for lake trout a bobber set to about 10 feet deep with a minnow but haven't had success

Brown trout are really aggressive and attack baits closer to the service rather than closer to the bottom. I have no experience with Lake Trout but I assume they're the opposite.
Nature and shit.

Iâ€™ve never casted for them but have caught both on cranks and several browns and steel head on jerks. I used to run both baits off the back of the boat while smallie fishing downtown. The lakers did like cranks near bottom

That's a proven rig, switch up your baits when one isn't working, salmon egg sacs are good, worms can work, I saw a guy catch a steelhead at the yacht club on a wad of cornflakes on a treble (he was after carp).
