WHen rowing back to the car today after bassing I noticed a lot of carp jumping. All of a sudden, not 10ft away a trout rolled on the surface! It wasnt some planter size either. It Was a BIG holdover. Looked more like an Amador trout than anything else. I know it was a trout and not a carp, not my first rodeo ;) ;)

How would one go about catching these beasts? Jerkbaits, trolling deep?

minnows, night cralwes, or power bait.

a 5 wt. fly rod with some bait fish type flies. Muttuka's , zonkers, wooley buggers stripped in slowly once they have sunk at least 10 feet in open water.

Rainbow trout pattern kastmaster behind seps flashers use to get me at least 2 fish a trip. I don't know what it is about that particular patter on kastmaster but I catch way more steelhead and trout on it than any other lure.

Maybe it was an early run steelhead ?
