No luck so far. Mind telling us your secret? :)
What? No one caught anything that day? Thats hard luck if thats the case. I went Sunday and didnt get a single bite. But bite was on when I was there Monday.

As far as the secret goes, I have already posted all the info I could provide. Maybe fish were not biting whn you guys went, or they were still stunned due to transpostation from hatchery to the lake.
And remember, its fishing. Not catching. Some time you catch fish. Other times you dont :D
Everyone, check out the pics of people going. When you get there, start off to the far right. When you walk in, you will see the dock. If you get there early, the dock might be a good place to fish too. They drop of the first batch of fish off to the right of the dock.

Bait info is on the message board.
Does anyone know what time do they plan to stock the Trout on Friday???

Usually it's between 10:30-11am
Are the fish active and biting the day they are stocked?
Yes, but some aren't too active and you can reach down and almost pick them up. It's like at first they seem to be in shock and hang around the surface, then they get active.
Sorry. Have to cancel. Just got called out of town for work the rest of the week. I'll definitely be there next time.

Oh, you are so correct. Definitely catch the next one.

Some people were using corn as well. But I didnt have much luck on it. You can try it this year and see the results yourself.

I am not sure if I ll go, or when. I caught some Trout last year but didnt like the taste of the fish. I ll share the tips I learned from last year.
Go to the southwest end of the lake. The trout are caught there mostly. Use live minnows under a bobber. 2-4 feet deep. Dont be quick to set the hook. Wait 4-5 seconds after the bobber is completely down.
