I was at lake don Pedro Sunday and the trout were leaping out of the water like crazy .I could not catch any of them either I found a spot that was real calm if i had my fly fishing pole I could maybe have caught some they were jumping for fly's.All I caught was a perch.......I would like to learn how to troll can someone tell me ways to do this.I have heard of down riggers? and another on using a lead type of line.......................................................I also heard turkey on the blm side of the lake that's enough info on that part .

John, if the trout are breaking the surface the last thing you want to do is troll with downriggers or lead core line. I would use a fly behind a water bubble or troll up on the top.

The fly behind the bubble bobber is what I've used when I don't have a fly rod and it does work. :signlol2iu:

I have spent lots of time on Pedro fishing and otherwise mostly bass fishing though it's a cool lake I have wanted to do some calling out there too but haven't gotten around to it.
