You're welcome. Good luck when you do hit it. There were a couple of dozen brooders released last week. Might not put up much of a fight; nor be any good to eat (all spawned out). But there's plenty of other fish too. Which will all be trying to fatten up before Winter really sets in.
Yeah I just don't get the fascination with newly stocked brooders. On the other hand--and after a harsh winter of fending for themselves--they will turn into naturalized fish. They will have had to re-learn how to fight for their own food, which will also be their first natural food too. Then turn into silver bullets in the spring and early summer. When they will be called "holdovers"; and put up a good battle and taste much better.
Do you guys think its worth it to try to make a trip up to henry hagg lake for rainbows theese next few weekends? I checked the stocking schedule and it was stocked recently. It will be bank fishing. Any pointers or places to start would be would be greatly apreciated?
