#1
Hey, if anyone is interested Thompson Lake on GR Thompson WMA just got a fresh batch of Rainbow trout on Thursday.   I was there with the Game Wardens when they dumped them in.

Is the dam still leaking? Last time I went to Thompson, the water level was really low. That was the last stocking this past spring. I was able to WALK out to the island in the back!

I've been watching the stocking site. But my job seems to schedule meetings on the days after trout get put in the water!

Hoping to head out sometime this season.

They don't post Thompson's stockings on the website. But yea the dam is still leaking but last I was out there its only about 3ft below the spillway. Game warden said is was still about 35ft deep. I want to try smallmouth there in the spring, hopefully the dam holds up until then. When I as on the back of the lake you couldn't walk to the island but I could see the bottom.

I caught two good sized rainbows this past weekend there. Four game wardens checking licenses - one was in training.

Heard a gun shot over the ridge and two decided to go investigate. Hour later I called it quits to get ready for a holiday office party and saw a guy dragging a young, button buck. He said there were 30 hunters in the woods and he was still hunting. Lots of deer movement because of the hunters scaring them about.

Two old codgers were ambling to their car, each with the limit of 6 on the stringer. I asked what they were using - The bait of the day was yellow PowerBait.

They had been there since 7 AM. I got there late at 11 - valuing my sleep and stopping at the Marshall Diner for breakfast and coffee first. Was 29 Deg F. Fish were staying near shore trying to warm up.

They have not stocked Thompson since December I think. What's up? Is it froze over?

Last year, they missed it in Oct and maybe January. Then they stocked twice in March and twice in April.
