You need to give the trout a day to settle down.
They are pretty skiddish after being dumped in.
Leaves more time for the big birds to take the fish out of the lake if you wait another day. I've always read on here and on TPW site to hit em on day of stocking.
Settle down lol..... I see make everyone think they need to wait a day while your out catching lol.
They are ready to catch ASAP. Last year we were at Bethany Lakes in Allen waiting for the them to stock. We were on the far side of the pond and didn't see the truck show up. My buddy Rob was fishing a crank bait for bass and caught a trout on a huge crank bait.
No kidding either! I saved the pic. Not too skittish
