My wife and I went out to Barbour Ponds the other day and went to our normal spot on the second lake. This spot also happens to be where they stock fish. We noticed at increase in surface action and saw tire tracks where a truck almost got stuck. I told my wife, "Hey, they must have stocked trout in here!" She baited up her two poles, three hooks with power bait and one with worms. I fished for carp as usual. As soon as her first pole hit the water she had a bite. This turned out to be story through out the day because she kept getting good bites but couldn't catch them. We tried different hooks, different baits, bobbers. No luck. So we left. We went out this morning and the same thing again. Tons of bites. Tom, the park ranger out there, stopped by to talk to us and come to find out that the lake was stocked but not with trout. Instead it was stocked with 6-8 inch crappie, 6-8 inch bass, and 6-8 inch perch. Perch have not been in these lakes since 1982, when they were put there for the northern pike, which are no longer there. Tom said pike may be re-intrduced to the big lake (Pelican Pond) next year. It looks like they (CSP) is taking these ponds seriously again.
