Loc: San Antonio TX
Depending on the area you are fishing there should be plenty a few days after the stocking takes places. Some places get stockings every week during December and January. Other places get several stockings during the program. Check the stocking schedule in your area.
I was at Southside Lions Park in San Antonio today from 7 am to 12 pm. Circled the pond casting a super duper and then threw out some floats with power bait at the only spot where the fish were surfacing. No bits. Talked to about 20 people as I went around the pond. Nobody had caught any trout.
Took my son to the Denton stocking earlier this week along with my father and a visiting friend. Took 2 hours to dial in (of 3hrs fishing) but the trout were biting on orange/chartruse with very slow/static presentations (spinners were not working). We walked away with 4 total off of two poles that were rigged the same way.
Fished the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center in Athens for trout Saturday; fun time fishing on a warm November day! Used fly rods and bubble/fly rigs on spinning gear to catch them... fun stuff! Video posted!
I went to Missouri City CPL today from 7:30 to 11:30 a.m. Plenty of trout jumping and surfacing in the first few hours. No luck on power bait or super duper. No one else pulled out any. One guy said he had fished every day since the 11/22 stocking and hadn't seen anyone pull out any trout (or perhaps one person had one the first day, I don't recall). The birds caught some, though!
