I prefer to fish for wild trout. However I also enjoy catching stocked trout as well. Stocked trout especially freshly stocked trout are a different challenge. The first time I fished with DaveR a palomino (Banana) refused the best drift with a BHPT, then smashed a bright hot pink ultra chenille worm on the next cast.
What is your favorite pattern for that period of time when a stocked trout doesn't know the difference between a stonefly and a ducks butt?

For these conditions, I like bright colored egg flies or a white marabou streamer with lots of gold or silver crystal flash (keep these streamers short as fresh stockies seem to short strike even more so than wild trout).

I usually start with a PT but for stockies, I would go with a frenchie with a hot spot.

If the water isn't super cold I almost always use a white bugger for fresh stockies.

The biggest trout I ever caught was a 16" stocked brown trout. Caught it on a #12 bead head green weenie, which has become one of my go-to flies, in general, but especially for fresh stocked fish.

I wonder why they take glo eggs

Curiosity or because it looks like discarded / lost powerbait ?

I never would have thought of a glow egg - big #14 or small #20 ?

They are hard wired from thousands of year of evolution to eat eggs.
A glo egg sets off there natural instincts.
I don't think that trout would key in on power bait, as probably 90% that eat it get jerked out of the water.
