Default Wellington Lake Stocking

I was up at Wellington last Friday and two large stocking trucks pulled up and stocked the lake. Also the care taker reported two 20+ rainbow caught the previous day near the dam. I know this lake has a repetition of suckers however the fishing pressure is minimal compared to the other South Park lakes. It appears the lake has a new website http://www.castlemountainrec.com/ . I was blown away with how cleaned up the facility is now. I recommend taking a trip up.

hahahhahah, that place is a ishhole. Trash everywhere. I mean it was silly how many pbait and worm containers there were everywhere, not to mention plastic bags, chip bags, and discarded line.
I would respect it, and keep is hush if 99% of the people who fish there did as well. Ive only fished there once, it was a few days ago, and caught unlimited 10" trout on a bobber and 1/2 worm at sundown. I was fishing near the beaver dam on the southside. I also had several fish on a small floating white jighead with a 1/2 crawler on a 1/4oz slip slinker. The floating worm was half way up the dropoff. The bobber was used when the bugs started to become really active at dusk, and it was only casted out 20yrds max. 6lb flouro leader seemed to be the ticket.
Hows that for blowing up your honey hole. :P

I know you were being sarcastic, but I couldnt help myself.
I wish people would pick up after themselves, and have a little repect for the areas they like to recreate.

lol yeah, i was being sarcastic. I live near by and tried fishing it a few times, but like you said, it's an ishthole. Its a shame too, because i think it could hold some nice fish if they were given the chance.

Glad they updated the site. Went there after it opened last year. Didnt have a single bite all day and saw zero rises. I've done ok at this spot in past years though. Honestly, it wasnt cleaned up as much as I thought it would be after being closed so long.

It's nice the fees arent as high as they used to be, but dealing with screaming kids, pbait dunkers, grouchy property owners etc. Not so much thank you. :P

How well was it cleaned up exactly? Still had the green bucket $^&ters with no doors last time i was there. Maybe good for a one nighter camping on a weeknight, to get faced and nail stockers.

Def not a destination site for me anymore though.

Ok so i'm a C&R most of the time unless someone asks me to get them some fish , ( I have some friends that think fishing is boring. Silly i know) but to take the Family up and not be able to bring anything home and pay 40 bucks not counting gas and such I think there out of there trees.

Valid point. I always took my fish limit home from there for that reason.
