Question Stock-Truck effect

Just updated my TWRA stocking report file and saw they just stocked a couple thousand 10-16" rainbows in a local lake/pond.

How long will they be easy prey for the boy for some fast action C&R?

I've hit metro lakes in Denver the day after a stocking and couldn't keep em off the lines... Same pond a week later, nada.

Is this a sign of immediate over-harvest, smartening of the fish themselves, or just the stock-truck effect wearing off?

Don't have much time this weekend, but could probably get out there next weekend...

The warm-water fish are tight lipped lately... Hard to even buy a pond gill.

In my experience the crazy, can't keep the fish of the bait, days are only within 3-4 days after stocking

Actually I can legit chum out here... When I carp fish, I can pound an area with a loaf of bread if I want to...

Catfishing, I can dump dead fish parts and worms/livers all around my spot to bring em in. I haven't tried it yet, but there is no regulation against chumming here.

Maybe I could toss some dog food or something out there... see if the fish come out to play and then cast right into it if they do.

pebbles are free and its just stocker trout right?

i think it would be fun to fish for a while if you chummed up a big bag of dog food. should bring all kinds of stuff in!
