    If you like fishing hatchery trout, I suggest you head to Poway first thing! Shinna and I stopped by the lake today to see what it's like and IT WAS ON FIRE!!!

    The most recent stockers were on the bite, and boy, were they willing. We saw full limits of fish being hauled up to the cleaning station, and the guys that were on the bank still were smashing it.

    Small jigs seemed to be the ticket, thrown at fish that were milling around the shore in shallow water. But the ol timers who didn't want to join in the fray also were doing good soaking dough at several spots. It seems like the fish aren't straying too far from where they were dumped in, as almost everyone is fishing on either side of ramp.

    The only guy that said he didn't do too well was the only guy fishing out of a boat. Looked like he was trolling with some ford fenders and pop gear. Guess the trout haven't figured out that it's a lake yet and are still waiting for the manna to rain from the sky...except this time it comes with a price...

    Tight lines guys!

    80% won't get that. Most such references are wasted today! Fishing like that is fun, even if they are stockers!

    Lol! Naw.. wasn’t us. Shinna (my wife and #1 fishing buddy) we’re hiking the Mt. Woodson trail. We decided to walk around the lake and see how people were doing. Looked like a lot of fun. I especially like sight fishing, and that’s what most guys were doing. You can actually see the schools of trout!
    Good to hear ya did well!

    Yep. And they stocked extra this time because of the ones that died in the last stock.

    Schools, or fish in the schools?

    Just standing there and watching I could see fish (maybe 100’s) swimming around. Of course, they were milling in and out of sight so it was hard to see the entire bio-mass, but there were a lot! The guys on shore were pretty excited since they (of course) could see them also and would cast to them. You could also see fish “boil” every now and then off shore.
