How to Setup Speckled Trout Fishing Rigs

Use this same rig setup when fishing around structures.

Dry fly/dropper rigs:

If fly fishing, you may prefer the dry fly/dropper rig. You can fish with two flies at the same time.

Start with a dry fly (buoyant).

Use a fly that is light enough to hold up the dropper without sinking.

Attach the fly to the leader.

Tie your dropper line with a clinch knot to either the hook or the eye.

The length will again depend on the depths of the waters you are fishing in.

Be sure to weight your dropper so the line stays in place where it should.

Avoid slack in the line that will lead to missed bites.
