So I know they are stocking a thousand or two trout in a local pond near me. I plan on heading down there to try and catch some but I hear they can be very hard to catch. I don't have a fly rod so what do I use instead, and if I were to get a fly rod, what flies would I use?

Wooly Bugger, Briminator, Haresear nymph. get a casting bubble and some flies and use a spinning rod unless you want to take the plunge and get a flyrod, lessons etc....

I suggest finding a buddy with a spare fly rod you can try rather than biting the bullet and buying fairly expensive gear. If you want to catch stocked trout, PowerBait fished under a bobber with some split shots will do the trick in a heartbeat.

If you do have a friend with a fly rod, I recommend egg patterns dead-drifted under a strike indicator.
