"May be of interest to others in the DFW Metroplex itching for trout action while waiting for Texas' trout stockings!" ...

Oh, yes, very interested, and plan to go there next Friday to try my luck.

Fished the Blue River in OK today; managed one little trout. Others were doing well but not this fisherman. No worries; lots of fun. Even put a song together inspired while on the road trip. Video Post.

Hope to be back sooner than later... PS: next weekend is the Trout Derby where they augment the stocking with bigger trout.

This evening tied a variant of the Mop Fly; made sure there was a wider gap on this one compared to the first one made the other day. Narrow gap was resulting in lots of missed hook sets! Post.

Keeping this one handy to try on the stockers this upcoming season!

Since our day job deals with data and things like spreadsheets, we are always ready to modify documents to make them easier to use. In this case, as in past years, we like to modify the schedule posted by TPWD by sorting the info in a spreadsheet. This year we do it again.

Check it out for those planning to fish this trout stocking season in Texas. We do recommend checking TPWDs updates as schedules change due to weather, unexpected things, etc... in our case, we print out the document and pen and ink it with updates as the season progress. Spreadsheets are useful but still not as fun as fishing! PDF Post.

Looks like Turner Falls gets a trout stocking soon in Oklahoma per their facebook page. Here are past videos of trips there... Videos.

Not able to make it to the Blue River this weekend for the Trout Derby. For now, it's a quick trip to Bethany Lakes this morning. No Bruisers but was able to get more practice with the OPST Commando Head on the backup 5wt fly rod. Even caught four fish... Video.

Thanks for doing this. Very helpful. Do you make the original Excel sheet available, as well? Would be nice if users could further sort by city/county to focus on stocking locations nearby. (I already did this on paper as there were about 20 stocking locations within an hour from me -- needed to put it all on a calendar!).

Thanks pavlaugh! The pdf version can be converted via adobe to a spreadsheet. The version of excel we have keeps failing when we load it to the server.

Getting an early start to the trout stocking season by making the run across the border to OK. Had fished the Blue River earlier this month; this round fished Turner Falls Park. Here is a video snippet of the last fish caught yesterday!

Another round at Turner Falls Park for trout. Two of us limited out before calling the trip short due to the windy conditions. Still lots of fun! Video snippet of some of the action is posted below.

Man Turner Falls sure is a beautiful place. I remember going there like 10 years ago and being amazed by how beautiful it is. Really clear water there by the looks of it, too!

I have been working a lot of hours lately. Nothing new for this time of year. I have made a few quick trips to the ponds in town to fish for some bass. Been enjoying this cooler weather and I think the fish have been as well. Here is a video of a few of my last few trips out.

Thanks Fisherman13; is a great place to fish when stocked with trout. Made one more trip Sunday to fish Turner Falls.... Took longer to get the last fish to make a limit. But, did limit out! Fun stuff!

Lengthy video of the three day trips we took to Turner Falls last weekend. Had a great time trout fishing the river! Added an overview of the area we fished that may be of interest to some. Do check out the video when you get the chance! PS: Some footage of the trout reacting to Super Dupers cast to them in clear water; may give an idea how the trout react when stocked in our local ponds
