Dear OFF,

I am going to go out to St. Louis this monday if weather permits it. Looking to fishing pond 6. Hoping to grab some of those big hatchery fish. :)

If I am to lazy to go out there I may go the back spot of Wailing Pond on 16th in Salem, Oregon. I was told there are some big fish in the back part of the pond.

I would mind having a fishing buddy. My girls farther bailed on me.

I was planning on using 2 poles - love how oregon adopted the 2-pole license.

One pole with some powerbait at the the bottom. The other pole with some powereggs and nigthcrawler from a bobber - about 2 feet from the surface.

Any suggests?

Has any one walked aroung wailing and fished the small shallow part of the pond in the back?

-Stephen

yup, i see that the stocking schedule has St Louis stocking week of 2/28/11. This does not mean that the fish will be in the pond on Monday. They could turn up anytime during the week depending upon schedule (but i believe that they stock St Louis on Tuesdays or Thursdays).

THE DATES LISTED ARE ALL MONDAYS
TROUT STOCKING WILL OCCUR SOMETIME DURING THE WORK WEEK
PLEASE CALL (971) 673-6000 OPTION 2 AFTER 2:00 PM DAILY TO CHECK STOCKING STATUS
SCHEDULES SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE

If there was an area without all sorts of orverhanging trees and snags I'd be out trying to learn how to fly fish.

I didn't even notice they where stoking them that week. :) I was going for the trout they stocked in Jan.

Yeah I am hoping to avoid the trees/weeds as much as I can. We will see how it goes. I will keep everyone poted.

I wounder if anyone has fished it recently.

i have been a few times to st. louis recently, i saw a two or three of the big brood trout they put in dead in the cove areas, and another swimming arround that looked almost dead, the fishing was very slow and i only caught one in a couple trips, a two pounder. there are always fish there though so good luck!

yep pond 6. I was there when they stoked it with the three pounders, and the ODFW guy said they put in 75+ not 50 like the website said. I only saw a couple caught that day and the next day. i might head out there later as well
