Big trout are carnivorous, and they love mice.

Big browns especially. It doesn't need to be a fancy realistic fly either with ears and all that. A Morrish mouse works fine. Not hard to tie, and not too bad to cast. Although I would advise using a 6 or 7 weight. Add a couple to your big fly box and some stout tippet. A fly this large the trout are usually less leader shy. They are looking at the mouse. Plus I bet you already have most of the stuff laying around.
