Went fishing at Salmonberry pond today. I ended up landing 17 almost identical looking fish. I couldn't get them to hit any lures, but they were starving for the almighty power eggs. Most of the time I was getting bites before my sinker hit bottom.

This leads me to believe that these are stocked fish, but this pond is not mentioned on the stocking schedule at all this year. It was on the schedule last year so maybe it was mistakenly omitted from the schedule this year, but it got me to wondering......does ODFW ever purposely stock places that are not on the schedule?

Wanted to get out there before ODFW stocks it full of "barely legals". Made it out today & hit limit in a little under three hours. Even released one that was too small for my taste. Biggest one was right around 15 and a half, smallest was around 13". Also got the pond to myself for all but the last thirty minutes. Life is good.
