LOL!!! It's Fall trout stocking here in Southeast PA.
For those not familiar with Pennsylvania's generous trout stocking program, if it's not Summer, there
will be trout stocking (and an 11 month season!). I went to a local lake that's a bit of a joke around here, but it was stocked yesterday with some serious
trout. The local streams are being stocked this week as well, but the nearest is 30 miles. The pond/lake is about 5 miles, so off I went. The rain kept the crowds away, but the trout were leaping everywhere. There were about 10 fishermen all huddled in one corner of the lake, and they gave my fly rod a bit of a dubious glance. The shores are lined with trees, but I surprised these guys with some sweet roll casting.
My cell phone camera stopped working after the first trout, but I was able to get a pic of that 16" fish:
of fishing for stocked trout on a crummy little lake doesn't excite me, but actually doing
it is fun. The fish hold very close to the bank at this lake, and the above fish was caught while inching a Green Weenie parallel to the bank, about 10 feet out (tops). While I've never kissed either of my sisters, I suppose this is what it would be like.
