Re: Early season stocked trout in small lakes
Don't get carried away with fly selection for stocker trout. Keep your selection simple.
Woolly Bugger types - Olive, Brown, Black - sizes 8 to 12
Soft hackle wet flies - Grey, olive, brown - sizes 12 to 16
Adams dry fly - sizes 14 to 18
For early season, I tend to err smaller.
Another thought. Throw the brightest size 10 Chernobyl Ant. Theory suggests it looks like Power Bait to the fish.
