What a coinkidink!
This subject came up today with a member of the forum I was talking to on the phone. A thread from the deep dark past on here has mentioned a place they had just stocked and the guy threw everything in the fly box at them and got nothing. I asked him how far away the hatchery was and it was not real far away. I suggested taking a ride over there and asking what the fish food looked like. I told him he should then tie up some Purina Trout Chow flies. Match the hatch(ery).
I also got some comments that it was kind of cheating, but I fail to see how it is. :confused

Castaic has Trout and monster Largemouth that think they are lunch. You have some really extraordinary lakes for Largemouth. When I lived in So. Cal. I went to Castaic once and the very first fish I got was a Largemouth in the 8 pound zone. There have been some serious monsters caught there. Call the DNR. They can point you in the right direction.
