Thanks, it looks like a few small ponds will be stocked near me starting on 11/23. Only 8 days from now.

In these small community ponds is it best to fish the same day they stock or give them a day to settle in?

I'm wondering the same thing, but also thinking that it's not going to take long before they're all caught.

I normally like to use small spinning baits like Panther Martins the day they stock and a couple of days afterwards. Around 3 days or so from stocking I have found that power bait works best.

Has anyone ever caught these on a fly rod?

Yes, I've watched people catch them on fly rod. I'm fortunate enough to be close to at least 3 of the ponds they stock yearly. One of them is actually getting stocked next weekend. banana

What's this about a 'Trout Stamp'? Is it included in my super combo?

I have fished trout stocked ponds that were stocked on a Wed and caught my limit several days later on Friday and Sunday. It is true that a lot do get pulled out on the first day, but there is generally always a bunch left over. Another observation - I have gone plenty of times on a saturday after a friday stocking and watched almost nobody catching fish - including myself.

Trout are included in all freshwater packages. The use of a special trout stamp was discontinued several years ago. It was replaced by the Freshwater Stamp we all have to buy. It is a shame because in the days of the special trout stamp larger numbers of trout were stocked.

I have been fly fishing since I was 8 years old, so 38 years now. Stocked Texas trout since 2007 off and on. Yes they can be caught on a fly, woolly buggers, egg flies, hairs ear nymphs, standard Briminators, etc... all work well. I'm no expert, but the ponds around me only get stocked once a year, there have been times that I have caught trout up to 3 months after the stocking. As late as May this year. I generally avoid the first 3 or 4 days after stocking, just because of the crowds. There are just some rude people out there. One time I was fishing one side of the pond, pulled out a few, within 5 mins I had bait fishermen within 3 feet standing on both sides of me. And they still managed to catch nothing. landed a few more and told them they could have my spot. Went and finished the day in the spot that they came from released a few more for another day and walked off without them catching a thing. Not a good thing getting that close to someone fly fishing in the Texas wind. Good way to get a painful piercing, lol

PS...Last year was able to see the trout being released at Bethany Lakes. Here is the blog post and video from last year. Limited out that day using Super Dupers! December 18, 2015.
