Early season stocked trout in small lakes
What would be ya'll's best recommendation for 'stocked' trout in small lakes (rainbows mostly) early in the season when the water is still rather cold ? Stocked trout react differently than natural grown trout I suspect, and curious if any of you face this type of trout fishing. Unfortunately here in the east, in my area anyways, stocked trout sometimes,,are the ONLY trout we have.
A preferred Steamer ? Other ? Size ? Color ? Type ? A fly that looks like a grain pellet ? !!!
ANY assistance would be greatly appreciated.
