So I will have an opprotunity to fish Blacksmith Lake in Hubbard Co in early June this year. What is the best way to catch "lake" rainbows that time of year?

How are you fishing the lake?
Boat, shore, float tube?
looks like it's stocked well,
and has nice size fish in it.

I would start by trolling the south shore, with a small
Mepps or some kind of inline spinner, Rainbows are aggressive
if they are there they will hit, go with light line (6# max)
The DNR site says there are weeds so that is where they will be
I'd try right on top of them first then both sides of the weed bed,
Good Luck there alot of fun to Catch!! Chef

If I troll can I use my motor, or will I have to use my Electric? So I would assume that I could bobber fish with a worm near weed beds too. How deep do you thing they may be? I fear is if I can see them, they can see me, and won't stick around the way sunfish often do.

you can use a regular motor, just have out a little more line,
if your going to bobber fish, I would start at 3ft and work your
way deeper, watch for surfice action that will let you know alot.
if you fish the bottem set up a sliding sinker system and blow up
your worm, remember you can't use live minnows on the lake.

daytime trout are bottom feeders I would start @ 18 inches off the bottom and slowly work up to twenty-four. the worm blown up off the bottom has worked well for us for over forty yrs up-north Later; in early eve a tiny rainbow rapala works well along the weeds, as well as spinners with a small piece of crawler trailing good luck and keep us posted grand marais 1

I had some luck out in Colorado last summer using floating jigs tipped with crawlers instead of inflating them. I set the depth by the length of the leader attached to a swivel (12-24 inches) with a 1/8 to 1/4 oz walking sinker ahead of the swivel. It worked great. Also a 1/8 to 1/4 oz Kastmaster tipped with a crawler, either trolled or cast worked well also to cover more water quickly. Just remember to smear some worm guts all over your line and lure to get rid of the human scent.
I'll send webdude some pics of the fish we caught
