On of the most consistent way to catch a meal of rainbow trout from a stocked pond is to use floating dough baits for trout. I prefer to use the Berkley products Powerbait and Gulp Trout Dough. Both of these baits float well and produce a lot of fish. My all round favorite tested in several lakes seems to be Gulp Chunky Cheese in Garlic scent or flavor. The trout go crazy after this bait and if presented well you will be into some great fishing. You will need a 3/8 oz sliding egg sinker, a barrel swivel, 4 pound Berkley Vanish fluorocarbon line and a size 18 treble hook. Very the leader length from 12 inches to 4 feet for best results. I usually start with a leader around 18 inches long. Roll up a ball of bait and cover the treble hook. Then launch it out into the water gently so not to lose the bait. Then the waiting begins and if everything is right with fish in the area you wont have long to wait. So go catch some rainbow trout today at a local pond or lake and give this set up a try.
