Quarry Park and Nature Preserve
 
Has anyone ever heard or been to Quarry Park and Nature Preserve in Stearns county, Minnesota? It says that the DNR stocks it yearly, I just stumbled on this place by accident. I go to school at SCSU so it would be great if their was a good trout place nearby for me to try. I can't find much info about this place so any help would be great.
Thanks, Cabot

To my knowledge there are no trout anywhere in the or near the metro area.

Well, today I caught my first trout at the Park. I have gone there a couple of times and have caught nothing but bass. But now I know for sure there are some trout lurking in the water.

Sweet! I'll have to check it out next time I'm back there. Any pics?

I don't have any of the trout. I am new to handling trout so I just tried to get them in the water as fast as I could. I am already trying to see when I can get back there.

Well I went back today for a couple hours, and I had a little more luck. I got a couple nice rainbows after I asked a some people if their dogs could swim somewhere else.... The color of the day was olive, I tried a couple of different flies but the only thing they'd hit was an olive woolly bugger and the same with a BH. Here are some pictures.

Nice pics! Looks like a lot of fun. Wish I would have know they were there when I lived in Becker.
