Am planning on heading out tomorrow and am tossing around either NFR or Hagg Lake. I am pretty familiar with Hagg at this point, but have yet to fish the 'Res'.

Thoughts? I see that it is not on the stocking sched. for some time, but is there a decent hold over population? Is it even open right now?

Thanks.

I'd risk it. All those fish you'd catch would be worth the jail time.

Ummm hello the lake is closed, I sure as heck hope you weren't fishing there today. Obviously you didn't read this thread or the freakin regulations!

Lois, Beaverfan is quite correct. NFR doesn't open until late May.

We prefer to meet you on the water, and not at the crowbar hotel! lol

P.S. If I were you...I'd have a nice long "chat" with the "little gal" at the information booth. She obviously is CLUELESS!

I Just went today, they got stocked this week. got there, just bbq-ing, ready for a no catch day. Casted out, 1 fish.
Then things got interesting. We threw on some Power Eggs, and the fish were biting. Cast out, and within a minute we caught a fish.
Needless to say, we limited out

We were going to but decided against it. We hit up Harriet then headed to North Fork for the rest of the day.
