What is the best time of day to fish for Rainbow Trout?

I fish for Rainbow Trout in a big creek, and I was there a few days ago, but wasn’t getting any bites. We tried spinners, jigs, and artificial worms, but nothing was working. It was from about 6 pm to dusk. We would run the bait right by them but they just wouldn’t bite. So I guess I have 2 questions. 1) What is the best time to fish for Rainbow Trout? and 2) What is the best bait to catch wild Rainbow Trout in their natural environment? Thanks.

Chosen Answer:

youre bait is fine and so is your timing. sometimes its just luck of the draw. perseverance will win over the fish though!

around dusk and dawn is the best time.

WHY wasn’t a more seamer friendly pitch created..?

I think I asked this EXACT question around the same time last year, but it still confuses me. Even MORE now that India are playing Sri Lanka.

Why has another flat pitch that will spin later been produced?

India have Zaheer Khan who is probably the best seam/swing bowler in the world, they have Ishant Sharma who is a young talent and very capable of moving the ball in seaming conditions.

They are facing Sri Lanka, a team who generally struggle away from home on any pitch that has a bit of movement in it.

India’s best spinner Harbhajan Singh is out of form, and their second spinner Amit Misrah hasn’t played a First Class match for 6 months. Whilst the opposition have Muttiah Muralitharan the most successful spin bowler in the history of the game.

So why?????
I understand that creating a seamer friendly pitch in India is tough, but I would do everything in my power if I was creating the pitch, to allow help for the seamers.

Unless of course Totti is right, and they are under instructions to make it a 5 day pitch!. Which of course brings me to the facts that Test Cricket is dying because of reasons like these

Chosen Answer:

I know its sickening, and the curators should be asked to break this “trend” by the BCCI, but then again, they want to make sure the telecasters get full 5 days coverage (yeah even if it turns out be a dull boring match).
