Last I looked Kroger shelves around here are pretty bare.... Good eating fish.... same one you'd catch in Cherokee... rather hook it then pick it up at the store..... of course if you fish simpkins pond it's like six bucks a day plus you need state licenses. Might try it as a diversion once deer hunting season is over . Long time till turkeys roll in. I get board with not much to hunt .

Pink trout magnet on TM 1/64 head fished 2 ft uder cork. Cast, reel, pause, reel , pause. Berkely Power worm whacky rigged under cork fished the same way. earthworms fished on double dropper rig with 1/2 weight on bottom.

I tried finding more info on how many and/or what species are being stocked. That pdf doesn't have a lot of info. But I am excited that Indian pond in edgecomb county will be stocked on Thursday.

The ones I have fished have been stocked with rainbows, brooks and Browns but the rainbows outnumber the others.

No. Sorry.

Should have been more clear. The ponds on the list they stocked in the past got all 3 species last year and only rainbows the year before.

If I told you how I caught 40+ Brookies in 2 hours in a 4’ wide creek walking around 10-15 Fisherman every 500 yards you’d throw rocks at me. I’ve posted up pics of natives and stockies caught. I do have a backpack case for a Spinner outfit for really wore patches. Cast masters and the pink trout magnets seem popular here in PA.

I like phoebe minnnows in NY. Kids run a million varieties of powerbaits. Locals buy from lure maker in a unique bead config.

Trout fishing definitely serious business here.

I like to take the kids to Lake Higgins pond to fish for the stocked trout. Have to pay like $3/lb after you catch them. I may try the caswell pond this weekend
