Not sure if everyone knows about this but trout season is about to start. I used to take friends with kids every year to show them how to fish as we could almost always catch a few fish. This year I decided to do a series of videos to share to show beginners how to fish and specifically to catch these trout. They are usually smaller fish 6-12 inches but they are plentiful and with a 5 fish limit you can usually catch a few for dinner. I will do a series of videos:
Rod selection
Using Power Bait
Using artificial lures
Teaching kids to cast and reel
Fishing at some of the local lakes
Just sharing this to promote fishing so check them out if you are interested and hit me up if you have any questions...

The website is here: https://tpwd.texas.gov/fishboat/fish/management/stocking/trout_stocking.phtml The trout stocking schedule for the 2020-2021 season will be posted here in mid-November. Each winter from December through early March, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department stocks rainbow trout in more than 100 locations across Texas. The hatchery-reared trout are 9 to 12 inches long and create a put-and-take fishery: we expect that most will be caught within a few weeks after being stocked. In spring and summer, most Texas waters are too warm to provide suitable habitat for rainbow trout. [Linked Image]

I wonder if TPWD will be posting the specific dates that trout get stocked, and if the stocking schedule will be adjusted this year. With the catfish stocking, TPWD declined to post the specific dates of stocking due to the pandemic; the goal was to make everyone not show up on the same days.

With the trout stocking, people near me are often fishing quite close to each other. One pond in particular has a pier where people have been shoulder to shoulder.

I recommend going a couple of days after the stocking event. It gets way less crowded and there are still plenty of fish until the cormorants show up...

This may help... I sort the stockings into a a schedule based on stocking date. The dates may change during the season but it's a little easier to sort through.

"Another Winter trout stocking season is fast approaching! Like in past seasons, yours truly modified the schedule posted by TPWD to sort by Stocking Date and the count of trout stockings planned for a location and its estimated trout to be stocked.

Makes for ease of reference by allowing Readers to quickly see when the next trout stocking is planned. As changes are unexpected for various reasons like weather, do check for updates, changes, and corrections at TPWD’s website – 2020-2021 Trout Stocking Schedule.

Modified PDF Schedule."

I go for the stocked trout because its a blast to take the kids (and I like trout in general). I agree there will probably be a ton of people there on stocking days.

That said last year I gave away as good bit of my terminal gear and disposable bait (mousetails/dough/corn) to people who had no clue how to fish but wanted to learn - those are people that despite the crowding are worth helping. They would see me catching and wanted to learn how so would come over and ask. Probably one of the better moments of fishing is when you show someone how to fish and why (and how to do it courteously). Then get to watch them do it and get a fish (sometimes their first fish).

I have always used red salmon eggs and sweet corn and had good luck. Last year I bought my first gold super duper and it worked great. If I only take three tools to a pond its these 3.

I met two of my current fishing buddies that way. One was just fishing next to me and caught plenty of fish, the other was watching us and not catching anything so he came over and asked what we were doing. I showed him and gave him some power bait and salmon egg hooks and we have been fishing together ever since. Now we chase striper in Texoma...
