Can someone help me set up my fishing pole correctly?

I have never set a pole up from the beginning and just bought a new rod and reel. It is already set with the line, but I want to know how and where on the line do I put the sinker and those little details that will make me ready to go. Thanks
I would mainly be trout and bass fishing maining with night crawlers, at a lake or creek.
