I think this would be a good picture for @kso_FAN  to bring the wolf back out from the shadows.

I know next to nothing about fishing, but have been thinking about it and one of the lil tdavers is showing interest. Any recommendations for an ultralight, collapsible, and inexpensive setup to throw in a pack and catch trout in mountain lakes?

You should PM Asava, he has pretty much lived a subsistence lifestyle in Farmington NM for the last 5 years and trout are one of his main food groups.

The one time I visited him he caught 18 trout in 2 hrs on a cane pole he fashioned out of 2 x 4.

For trout in lakes just get a little ultralight spinning rod with 4lb test, several Mepps spinners and little spoons. If you're not used to spinning gear you might want a closed face reel to avoid tangles. Easy.

Don’t be too proud, guys. Power bait the crap out of trout lake fishing.

maximize this interest from the lil tdavers by taking them where they stock farm raised fish - the lakes in the pike peak park are a good example in CO but aren't you in SLC?

Just went fishing for the first time yesterday.  Caught some trash.  No fish.  Stay tuned for fun muffin's first catch.

Tried again.  Lost a lure.  Losing hope.

You should go with an experienced friend first. Pick up some pro tips and then give it a try.

Are you baiting a hook with live bait, using bobber, after cats? Or some in-and-out artificial lure bass/perch/crappie/bluegill fishing?

If its the former, i know nothing.

If the latter, I always keep a weedless frog variation, a few Mepps-style blade/treble hook spinners, rubber worm for Texas rig jigging, and a traditional spinnerbait

Bass.  With a white spinnerbait.  But after a quick google search white bait doesn't seem conducive to murky water.

Try the Texas Rig with a large plastic worm. Run it in areas near the bank with more cover.

Tried this.  But I forgot to put a weight on it.  I did get my first nibble though.  That was exciting!!  No catch though and I didn't catch any trash today.  Progress!!!   

Do I even need to put a weight on it?  If yes, can you send me a link to a weight to get.  There are so many at the store.

Use the weight that is shown in this video.  You can usually buy a pack that has several different sizes.

No bud. Sorry. That would have been cool. In a cabin about an hour outside of DC in West Virginia.

Took the boat out to a farm pond this weekend.

I also caught a 7-8 lb catfish using a jig while in my boat. Fought it for about 10 minutes getting pulled all over the lake before it tired and I could get it to shore, no way I could get the hook out while on my boat.

Unfortunately I was on the opposite side of the pond from my Bros/Phone so no pictures.
