Back in the old days the old boys would tight line night crawlers on bait casters and catch stringers you wouldn’t believe. 

yes indeed. Dave Bethurem and I called them "blue ribbon stringers".

When you catch a lunker trout, be sure to handle with care and release it for the next angler. Afterwards, go up to the strip and eat a Cakes and Creams Supreme to celebrate.:=D:

You ain't lying there buddy!  Funnel cake sundae for the win.  All that sugar keeps me going later into the next night too lol.

I like all these so far. I have been fishing it for 20+ years, but seeing everyone else's perspective is really awesome. Everyone does things a little different, and that is what I was aiming for. Keep em coming.

Many years (~50) ago when I fished for trout with spinning tackle a couple hundred times a year, I would have bet any one that I could take more with night crawlers than they could with any other bait. You can rig a night crawler so many different ways and fish it on or off the bottom or at any depth including the surface. And when the fish bites it likes the taste.  However, the things can really stink up a car trunk on a hot day (with a long lasting smell that never really goes away) and often the fish can't be released in good conscience, most will be hooked deep.

If wading avoid the outlets ... People elbow to elbow that don't know what they are doing . Try farther down.  Also remember the studs and midges they are the most prolific inverts.

Me and @patfish were down there for a bit on Sunday. We were in between 1 and 2. I'm trying to force feed some risers a gnat when this huge cast appears from my left. Definitely not a fly rod. So I just glance back to see how close they were to me and of course it's a spinning rod being held upside down and they are cranking it backwards. Time to go.

Not much offends me in this world, but seeing somebody hold a spinning reel upside down and reeling it backwards is one of them.
