Two hundred rainbow trout were stocked on December 1, with the next stocking scheduled for December 16 (note: stockings are subject to change, fish could be stocked days earlier or later depending on the delivering vendor). Fishing will improve as additional stockings increase the number of trout per acre, but the first batch of fish are active and biting. Powerbait fished 1-2 feet off the bottom has shown the most production in the coves between the fishing piers. 1/16th - 1/8th ounce Kastmaster spoons and Little Cleo spoons in silver or gold with orange or chartreuse stripe have also been effective along the shorelines when fished with a slow steady retrieve and an occasional quick upward rod lift.
