Default Re: I Can't catch a stocked trout

Uh, you might try something that plops down with a splash, like a heavy weighted Hare's Ear. Try a size 10 or 8. The food pellets they feed to hatchery trout while raising them make a distinct splash when they're put into the water. That's what they're used to.

They'll adapt to the food in the pond, so whatever is there they're eat. Keep at it, eventually you'll find a fly they'll take.
