Default Monument Lake species?

Since my initial question was so dumb I would like to pose just a general question. What species have you caught in Monument Lake? I've only managed to catch rainbow stockers and was just curious if anyone has had any luck catching anything else.

Thanks!

LOL good luck. Let me know when you find them.

Yeah? I also have heard rumors; that at a strip club 13 miles north of Casper, Wyoming... The strippers, although toothless and smelling of cheap pyramid cigarettes... Will happily pick up dollar bills out of your hand with their lady tunnels. Perhaps I will find this out one day for myself. Grey reef does fish pretty good for walleyes I keep hearing....

Dude, the club is literally 2 double wides attached to each other right off the side of the interstate. I always wondered what that place was like when i worked in Casper, out of morbid curiosity... But never went in cuz I was married... Welp, now I don't have an excuse anymore..

LOL...I know the place and always wondered myself. When I was courting my wife she lived in Billings so I drove up there every other weekend for a year and drove by that place. Always said I was going to stop in but thought about my future and wanted it disease free!!! LOL...I also ran out of fuel once right there and coasted into their parking lot, luckily got a ride to town by a roughneck!!!

Stop being a put and take lake junkie and drive up into the mountains and go to the usual suspects that grow big trout. Way better odds.
