Willow Pond was one of the first Community Ponds to recieve Trout for the fall fishing.
Many other Community Ponds will be recieving Trout in the next few weeks, as the water in these ponds become acceptable for Trout.
Water temperatures and oxygen levels need to improve, before the Trout can be stocked.

Willow pond was stocked with 12-13" rainbows on 8/30. A lot of them died due to high water temp. But there are still some in there. It has been stocked again but this time with little 6-9" rainbows. There was a caddis hatch the other day and I caught 10 of the bigger ones and about 30 of the smaller ones. This morning I only caught 5 of the little ones.
