Default Re: Stocked trout question ;)

Even on wild trout that see alot of fishing days, like the madison river or gallatin river out here, I rarely if ever use anything smaller than a 4-5x(nymph fishing), and usually am in the 0-3x range.

Getting a proper drift, and not false casting too much spooks the fish way more than thicker line imo.

That's the trade-off with heavier tippets: less movement.

Trout season re-opens at 8am, but I won't be using corn... . Has
anyone ever watched a hatchery trout to see that they don't eat insects?
This past winter I was catching trout with buggers and green copper johns,
while guys with corn and powerbait caught nothing. We were fishing the
exact same spot. One guy did manage to get a couple on green powerbait....

I've always avoided stocked waters, mostly because the site of empty corn
cans and bobbers floating all around isn't what I dream about .
