anyone here planning on hitting the flowermound stocking on Dec 6th? - small(emphasis on small) little pond with some of the clearest water I've seen so far in Texas. I'm amazed they plan to put in 1000 there.

I was wondering whether it was a mistake that they said they would stock Heritage Park in Flower Mound. I do not see a pond in that park based on Google map.

It's a new pond... fished it last year, small but still fun to fish! Exit mentioned in the video may be closed still due to construction, but still easy to get to at the next exit after.

Pond only shows up if you zoom into street level since satellite has not updated. Water is significantly clearer this year that from your video (i swung by last week after picking up my son). Guessing that is due to water vegetation having stabilized and filtered.

Both exits are open now w/ parking on either side of the pond (or at least were as of last week). They are doing construction on the far side of the parking lot for a new splash pad beside the playground so I would imagine they may still have some closures.

Thanks for the info. I'll probably head back to this pond once or twice more if you can recommend any particular areas or tactics. smile Mary Jo Peckham and this pond are about equal distance from where I live on the north side (Spring / The Woodlands). This pond has a nice little playground near a shaded area on the northeast side, so it's a good place to spend a weekend morning with the kids even if we're not catching. I probably won't hit other Missouri City / Sugar Land ponds once January rolls around and the ponds on the north side of town get stocked.

I spent the first 2.5 hours walking the pond. In addition to throwing a super duper, I threw in power bait on a float every 10-20 feet while going around. (In years past, my experience has been you have to get right on top of the stocked trout to get any bites.) Other people were using power bait off the bottom; others using worms; a couple fly fishing. Nothing seemed to work. It seemed to me that the water had pretty low visibility, even for for the Houston area. Perhaps that contributed to the bite being off.

Thanks Yellow_Cloud! Always great to fish for bigger trout that TRWD stocks! Went Saturday to a new place Caruth Park - a small neighborhood pond stocked with trout last Wednesday. Only caught one but still good to get out and wet a line on a warmer than usual Saturday.

Made another attempt at Missouri City CPL. No luck! I'm heading to McGrath Park this weekend if anyone is familiar with the pond and could give some pointers. Thanks!

McGrath was well stocked. My son and I limited out in about 4 hours. Trout were schooling on the southern part of the pond. They weren't jumping/surfacing as much as they were last year. Caught them on power bait and super dupers.

We also swung by heritage park today for about an hour or so and caught not a one. I had a couple good "hits" but the micro sized #16 hooks I was using apparently didn't set. Others were catching, seemed on different baits. All the fish I seen caught looked tiny. This is a very nice man-made pond with very clear water. Looks like the ponds people build in their front yards, too "picture perfect". Great day to be out, might try greenbriar park (I think this is the one stocked yesterday) in fort worth tomorrow. will see
