I finally made it over to the lake today. Pretty nice and I look forward to getting the kayaks on it.
Did you get out of the truck to fish this time? We saw a few people heading around the far side of the 2 little docks. Probably about noon.I rode out to the lake to hang out with a buddy and just chew that fat for a little while. Only got 1 bite but I mostly went to socialize with a friend so the trip was worth it either way. Trout have gotten pretty scarce in that lake and we need another stocking.

Yeah I didn't go till yesterday evening around 4. We did get out and stand around while we were there. Talked to some people who had been around the way you said. Said they been there since lunchtime and had only got 1 bite. I gave them the trout I hadDid you get out of the truck to fish this time?

What bait do you typically use on the stocked lakes?Been sick off and on a lot the last couple weeks and hadn't done much fishing. Well felt a little better last few days and met up with my buddy Johnny. We caught 3 a couple days ago I didn't get pics of. Got 4 yesterday and then they stocked a lake nearby today so we hit it up and managed 12 in a little over an hour.

Really ain't sure didn't measure em but they were pretty nice and I'm gonna guess 14 inches and up for the bigger onesThem look like good size, what’s the avg length?
Everytime I go, catch fish or not it takes me back, back to much simpler times and very fond memories of my father who taught me how to fish. I sure miss him and visit his grave often but remember him most when I'm on the water. Guess because we spent most of our time together either fishing or doing some type of huntingYour thread reminds me how much I miss visiting my Papaw and Granny in Chilhowie. Not just the fishing but having fresh fried trout on the breakfast table to go along with the biscuits and gravy. The smell of the pines and the low hanging stove smoke over the valley each morning. Thank you for helping me remember many cherished early memories!
