Since it is my first year doing the fresh water thing i have a question....
It is productive to fish for trout in lakes when it is raining?
if not...
How soon after the rain stops will action start again?

I've often found that fishing while it's raining is better than the bright sunshine days. Some of the best trout fishing I've ever had has been just after a thunder storm. I fished a section of river only picking up 1 fish in like 1/2 mile. It started pouring and turned the water just off color and in the same section that I just fished, I ended up with about 25 trout on the way back to the truck. Sometimes the rain can be a trigger for fish.

Rain is good as it can help disguise you and the bait you offer. I love to throw spinners in the rain the trout love them and the bite can usually be very consistent.

Rain on a lake helps cover up your approach and presetnation mistakes. On a stream, it can ruin fishing if the water is already high and off color, but as Dubs noted if it's low/ clear to begin with, it will really turn fish on. I consider about 2 feet of visibilty perfect.
