Small Pockets Hold Good Sized Rainbow Trout

Wide open water may give an angler plenty of room to cast and a lot of presentation options, but the narrow out of the way spots on the creek can hold some nice fish. 
Start out with your bait in the white water and slowly move it towards the bank.  Bring your rod tip up and down a few times as you move your bait through the water.  Tuck your line as close to the bank as you can because some of these cut banks can go back under a few feet.  If you don't hook up right away move back to the white water and try the other side of the pocket.
The Trout that live in these dark places will put up a great fight and can wrap your line around roots, branches or other things in their hideaway.
