    Nice day. It was pretty good but I had an early trolling motor problem that did me in. I was getting them about 2.7 to 2.9 mph mostly. I hit most of the fish in 50 feet of water but mostly where the bottom was on the shallower side. Wasn't hitting as many out in the middle.

    Never could get a koke to hit. I'm lost when it comes to those fish.

    Try hammered nickel (called just Nickel). It worked good for me last Saturday there but my trolling motor broke so my fast trolling was over for the day. Stuck a couple of nice trout and lost a huge one but figured had I been able to troll a while longer I would have had a really good day.

    I agree the red/copper is a good color too. I've done well with Thomas Bouyants in that same color trolled a little slower. Fire Tiger is good but I've done better in the spring with that color for some reason.

    I cant speak for the OP but I have been using speedy shiners almost exclusively for trout trolling for about 3 years. I’ve used them in various lakes including Camanche, Pardee and Shasta. The colors that are most productive for me are red/copper, red/silver and fire tiger. I’ve tried several other colors and they are all effective but those 3 are my go to colors. I often go solo and troll 2 rods. I put a different color on each rod. I find every day is different. Usually they will prefer a certain color and I will get about 3 to 1 hits on one lure that they like on that day. Lately firetiger has been hot.
    Speedy shiners are a super effective lure and because you fish them fast you cover a lot of water and increase your chances of finding fish. If you fish speedy shiners at 2.5 mph and higher (I generally pull them about 2.8 to 3.1 mph) and you put them in proximity of trout you are going to catch fish. I also use scent but that’s another discussion.
