Made the first stocking of the 2017 Trout Stocking Program from the Texas Parks & Wildlife on the Guadalupe River. I arrived about an hour after the truck made it's drop. Fished from 11:15am till 2:00 p.m. and caught about 15 fish. Kept five for the frying pan. Ran into Will 1960 Texan and watched him catch a bunch. Gold Super Duper lures,Gold Panther Martin Lures, and Berkley Cheese Bait were used. Fish were holding at the ends of currents and next to shallow ledges. Also met my buddy Steve who limited out in 10 minutes using a gold Super Duper. A couple of nice Bluegill were also caught. Catching a limit of Rainbow Trout and meeting up with some good friends. It just don't get any better! fish

How much meat are on those trout they are stocking vs a 10" crappie? Thought about taking my daughter to one after they stock it.

I'd say comparable, maybe a little more meat on some of the better trout.

Cool pics banker cheers

Nice fish! What kind of retrieve do you employ with the super dupers?

Went to the local pond that was just stocked with trout and caught around 7-8. Most of them were only around 7-8"???? Is it common for this small of fish to be stocked? I figured we would get fish at least 12"? Now, I'm not complaining about catching some fish, it beats a skunk any day, just curious..

TPW stocks a lot of small trout in the 5 to 7 inch range. The trout used for the stockings come from Missouri and are shipped during the summer to the hatcheries in Texas. The smaller trout usually do not get the chance to grow any bigger. I usually throw the smaller ones back if they are not hooked badly and are in good condition before I release them. It seems to me the average length of the trout stocked by TPW are in the 9 to 10 range. I have caught a lot in the 11 to 12 inch range. It seems TPW stock the bigger fish later in the winter. Just my two cents. 2cents

Yeah I released all of the ones that we caught. It makes sense that bigger ones would get stocked later in the winter, as water temps get colder..thanks!
