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.

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.

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!
