My primary rod is a 6' G Loomis fast action rated for 6-10 lb line and I run 10lb braided Power Pro only. Once in a while I'll add an extra spool of mono if I think the situation calls for it which is rare.

Often I fish "double barrel" where I haul around two poles. First hit with worms for a while, then hit it with spinners. Back and fort. Saves some time not having to re-rig and I just don't trust any swivel snaps these days.

My second pole is an old Eagle Claw Featherlight. Originally 6'6" I have lost two sections now and continue to fish it at ~ 5'6." Honestly a shorter rod and a lightweight rod like this has it's advantages when worming and when casting within thick brush. I find it easier to cast with a shorter rod in tight quarters.

If you are just out to catch trout don't worry about the right rod, just get out and fish. Majority of trout can be caught with any average pole, just a matter or preference and that you will acquire over time.

I use a 6 foot medium light St. Croix as my Primary stream rod (For medium and smaller streams where big fish are present) I also use a 6'6 medium Shimano Clarus for fishing for Large Browns. And for small creek and Brookie fishing I use a 5'6 ultra light St. Croix.
