Default Re: Spring fed pond with stocked trout?

I was able to make it out. I didn't end up landing anything. I did hook one on a white wooly bugger bu it got off as soon as it got close enough to see. I didn't set the hook near good enough. Then watched a little guy follow the white woolly bugger and bite it but I missed it. I felt one more fish nip at it. That was in 4.5 hours of fishing. It was still fun though getting to practice my casting. Started getting good at shooting all my line out again. and probably could have been a little more accurate if I wasn't using a 9 foot straight leader of 4 lbs flouro. I also tried a few worm flies, some streamers, and a couple of nymphs. But out o about 10 people fishing there during that time only 1 caught fish and he was saying that they were not agressively taking his bait at all. And he was there about the same amount of time and had 3 fish.
