Trout stocking starts tomorrow!
#11
I just sketched out an overhead topography of the lake.

The steep drop-off area outlined in green is currently dry, cracked dirt.  You can walk on it without boots.

The top third of the Deep Water Areas is currently a shallow that is maybe 1 to 2.5 feet deep.

Finally!  They just stocked Cook Lake in Alexandria.  I'll be going there tomorrow morning before work.

I slept a little later than expected and got there at 6:30 AM.

Fished for about an hour without success using powerbait.

Saw a few guys who had limited out (4 per person for Urban stocking waters program in Virginia).  they said that only brown trout were stocked this time around.

I switched to a black and silver spinner and limited out in 30 minutes.  Packed up to head to work by 8AM.

First fish was a nice 14 inch brown trout.  The rest were 11, 11 and 12.

I caught a nice little rainbow in Madison today on the Robinson River about 1/2 mile above where the Robinson and Rose Rivers converge. I started out in a local pond and after 45 minutes had caught a bluegill, bass, and crappie. I didn’t keep any but I was started to feel lucky so I headed out to fly fish at about 3. I used a bumble bee dry fly and this or another fish took three or four swipes at the fly before it took it for keeps on like my tenth cast. I was only at my spot like 30 minutes, including getting the pole and fly ready, before I had dinner in the bag and went home to grill it.

I stopped trout fishing once they stopped announcing where they stocked to encourage quarantine and social distancing.

No use going out to fish where there are not fish known to be.
