At Holmes you pull a ton of these through the ice. I plan on taking my daughter out there this year. I actually took her there yesterday and will post a report as soon as I find my card reader.Grandpa D said:With the weather starting to cool down, the stocking of Trout at Community ponds will be comming very soon.
Fall can be some of the best times spent fishing at Community ponds.
Be sure to take some kids to your local pond and get them "hooked"!
Trout should be showing up any time. The water was still low on oxygen last week, so the pond wasn't stocked yet.waltny said:Grandpa D,
How is Meadow Creek doing on the turnover? Are you any closer to getting trout or whatever else they stock in there? My oldest daughter is interested in coming back out and I wouldnt mind some still water fly casting pratice with the possibility of catching something.
My girls and I got skunked over at Meadow Creek today. I had some minnows under a bubble for both my girls and I seemed to be cutting the air in hopelessness with the fly gear. I used a bead head bugger for a while till I whipped it off, and couldnt seem to match what they were after amoung the scum that was on top. The girls were too restless once we got to Jensen for any kind of fishing.Grandpa D said:So who has been fishing at the community ponds?
I have taked several of my grandkids to Jensen's and Meadow Creek with great results.
The kids are having a blast!!
If you want to get in some quality fly fishing practice, hit one of the ponds right now!!!
Sinking line in type 2 or 3 is working best, but a lot of fish are being caught with a dry line and about 8' of leader.
You using the beadhead version? I had one on today at Meadow Creek and Jensen and didnt do so great. I was finally hoping to prey on some stockies to make me think I can be successful at fly fishing, but . Anyhow, I know what your talking about with the guys with stringers or 5 gallon buckets full of fish. There seems to be a trend in a certain group I see doing this, but :roll: . 5-10 guys all going for a limit, yelling and screaming in various languages like the pros they are.Greenguy88 said:Ya I think its kind of ridiculous when Im at Syracuse pond and I see people with stringers full of little fish all like 10 in... whatever works for them tho I guess. By the way Syracuse is fishing good right now... Have been successful stripping in black and olive wooly buggers for the planter bows.
