How to fish trout in inland lakes?

I have a local 40 acre lake that has both brown and brook trout. The lake is about 50-60 feet deep at the deepest point. There is no motor trolling permitted so I was wondering how do you catch trout in the summertime? Thanks, Gunnysack.

Crawler under a slip bobber is all you need. The County I grew up in had a bunch of trout lakes and we woud always do really good like that on the one. Set the slip about 10' down and cast it out and wait.

In summer it's all about finding their preferred temperature. For Brooks between 43 and 53 and for Browns 50 to 65. They may make short forays into warmer water to feed in the morning/evening but most of the day will be spent in cooler water.

Get the fly rod out. I've had great success wading out into reservoirs in CO and pitch out a dry fly if you see them sipping bugs off the top. Try a stimulator fly or another attractor type fly. By wading out, you'll get closer to colder water and your back cast won't end up in the bushes. Dusk is a good time to giver a try.    Tight lines.....

I am considering adding a sail (of sorts) onto my fishing style Pontoon boatThe lake I fish is motor trolling permitted but I want to use it to reduce fuel costs

All you can do is try LOL My best luck was on fathead minnows. But I have also caught them on worms & once messing around, on an orange gummy bear LOL

Thanks for the replies, would trout worms work also if you could get them that deep before the bluegills get them?

One lake I used to fish for brown & rainbow trout had a 35 foot deep hole. I would drift over it, with a plain aberdeen hook with fathead minnow and splitshot, about 15 feet down for the browns and if I wanted rainbow, i would jig a little deeper, about 20 feet. Cool

How deep do they live in the summer?

Try minnows and/or wax worms on a slip bomber. Small crappie-size jigs also work well.
