I flyfish for wild and stocked trout. I have seen stocked fish that have been in the water a while that are as hard to catch as a wild fish. You guys who say you fish ONLY over wild fish are missing ALOT of fun!


BINGO, we have a winner. It's about having fun and in some cases you only have a short time to fish. Would I rather catch a wild trout? Sure I would, but I also want to enjoy my time and a tug brings enjoyment. I sure as hell ain't out there for the heck of it.

And on and on.....



No right....no wrong....just different.

All good points and well said. I will always say fishing stock trout isn't a challenege but that doesn't mean you can't fish for them.

I'm lucky enough to have wild trout within a half hour drive and stocked trout within a 2 minute walk.

Both have their moments where they are incrediblly picky and incredibly stupid.

While fishing for stockies over the past few weeks, unless I'm just going for some quick fun or trying to outfish the bait guys, I've been avoiding the buggers and junk flies and exclusively fishing dries.

I was on some stocked fish that were rising last night and I had to switch flies 5 times to get a take. After that it was game on.

For some reason, they wanted size 16 sulphurs. Nothing else would even get a look. But I bet these same fish would have fought each other to take an egg fly bounced down the feeding path.

If you want a challenge, try fishing a technique that would make it more difficult to catch a fish. It's all the more better once you finally hook one.

I'm thankful for the stocked fish very close to me. No wild trout elitism here.

It is not hard to think it thru that getting a quality response (post) out of some people may be difficult. Maybe my post should have been to compare Stockies vs Humans.

was 100% a quality response (post) and fact. I should retract some of my comments about being a challenge though I guess when they want pellets it could be a challenge to catch them lol

How do we know what exactly a trout wants to eat. We humans become accustomed to certain dishes - it does not mean we want the same thing all the time!!
Some would say that they (trout) have an 11 second memory and yet it is seldom we catch the same trout every 11 seconds.
Even stocked trout learn from trial and error - and will no longer hit powerbaits, certain flies, and pellets. There are several Palaminos swimming in Pennypack Park that won't hit anything I've laid down to them. They seam to be smart enough to watch other fish get hooked and realize it is danger. I do wonder if they will starve themselves to death.

Since they are stocked fish I will not ask you (Hook_Jaw) for any recommended flies or nymphs. Nor with your response will I take it seriously since you do not fish for stockies.

Anyways, if your not fishing for stocked trout when they are so plentiful this time of year you may be letting yourself down.

Just close this thread please, it has less to do with the subject and more to do with arrogance in my opinion. Who cares? I couldnt imagine checking this thread 20 times a day to talk down on people who fish for stocked fish. Save it. End of story

Don't read it then it's real simple!! What a slow day at the office. There is no doubt 70% of the fisherman on here agree with the stock trout no challenge theory they just don't want to ruffle feathers which is fine.
You guys misconstrue this as Im being serious about these comments I don't hate people that fish stock trout my brothers fish stock trout they know I hate it but I don't call them a idiot it's life go fishing enjoy it.
