Thanks for the tip BassProJD.

FYI: Stopped by Celebration Park's East Pond at lunch and after work today. Still field testing the Cigarette Egg Fly that a member of our team created.

Caught 4 Sunfish and 1 Catfish on the Cigarette Egg Fly. Pictures posted in the link below.

Plan to try other fishing areas and continue to test the fly. Will post results!

Participated in the City of McKinney Trout Derby this morning at Towne Lake. Caught five fish limit in less than 30". Opted for spinfishing gear and fished corn on the bottom on a Carolina Rig.

Returned later in the afternoon with my fishing partner. Same story, different fisherman, five fish limit on corn fished on the bottom on a Carolina Rig.

Pictures posted in link below.

Returned to Towne Lake in McKinney for another chance at Trout in the late afternoon. Started out slow with no hits on a Carolina Rigged corn but then it picked up about a half-hour later. Partner and I ended up limiting out - 10 Trout ranging from 8" to 10.5" in size. Pictures and more details posted in the link below.

FYI: Saw the Game Warden out issuing citations, so beware and heed the five fish per person daily limit and ensure you have a license.

Trout activity at Towne Lake in McKinney remains steady. Fished a Carolina Rigged Corn on the bottom and caught a 5 fish limit ranging in 7" to 9.5" in size in less than 45 minutes.

Cleaned the fish and noted the stomach contents. Most were filled with Corn. However, two Trout had a Chartreuse PowerBait Nugget along with Corn in their stomachs.

Pictures posted on the link below.

Fished Celebration Park's North Pond and caught five Bluegill / Sunfish in 15" on the Cigarette Egg Fly, fishing fly that simulates a piece of bread floating and/or sinking in the water.

The fly is tied using material from a cigarette filter and works well in community lakes and ponds.

The fish were small but still fun to play with on light tackle. Pictures posted in the link below.

Fished Friday night at Towne Lake in McKinney for Trout. Bite was slow and required trying different tactics before finally getting strikes.

Settled on fishing with bread on the bottom but without a weight. Caught 4 Trout ranging from 8.5" to 10". Posted pictures in the link below.

Fished Bethany Ridge Park pond in Allen yesterday morning to test a couple of fishing flies. Caught several Bluegill and observed a number of fingerling Catfish under the bridge that crosses the feeder creek.

Posted pictures of the fishing flies and a few Bluegill on the link below.

Fished Celebration Park's East Pond at Lunch today. Caught one small Catfish by chumming with bread, and then slowly crawling it along the bottom. Cold and windy and did not wear gloves. Picture posted in link below.

Fished Celebration Park's East Pond this morning and then returned later in the Evening.

Caught Catfish, Bluegill, and Sunfish. Posted a slideshow of the fish in the link below. Pictures are not the best. Still working on getting a better camera.

Largest Catfish went 1 lbs and was 16" in size. Still seeing bigger one's working the area; just cannot get a good hook set.

Went back to Celebration Park's East Pond to have another go at Catfish.

Caught a 17" and 19" Catfish. Picture for the 17" Catfish saved; picture of the 19" Catfish did not save. Weighed it before releasing back into the pond - weighed 1.75 lbs. Have other pix in the link below.

Bottomline: Panfish are readily caught in the East and North Ponds. Catfish are best in the East Pond.
