hm, i\\\\\\\'ve never caught trout out of a pond, but i\\\\\\\'ve had success with a variety of colors. in this video i stuck with darker colors, the one that produced the most was a dark green / black body with a gold blade. i liked to use 1/8th oz rooster tails because they are compact and will attract small and big fish alike. the 1/4 oz rooster tails have a much bigger body and a much bigger treble hook so you may miss a lot of bites because of the much bigger hook.

Also using panther martin lures (Gold) can attract avgerage size to trophy size trout. Hope you get great sized ones!!!!!!!!!

in my experience they like the sunken road up the middle of the lake and they love jigs

Trout also tend to hit in man made lakes off of powerbait of various colors
