Here is a Video Guide to help with Old Betsy thanks to Maka91:

You have to fish in the spots marked as "hard" on the map ie: Golden Trout (Hard) located directly south of Rye and Sons Aviation. Also I found it really helps if you change your bobber by first holding down cn_LB then while holding cn_LB press cn_RB and while the Fishing Rod is highlighted press cn_Y to switch your bobber to the one that is the same as the fish you are trying to catch. These bobbers are:
Basic Mayfly
Hybrid Sturgeon
Salmon Egg
Bass Popper
Trout Bugger
