Maryland Trout Stocking Schedule Oct 12 2011

And hey… since I’ve been asleep at the wheel since early last week, Maryland has also stocked some more trout, including steams and the lake in and around Cunningham Falls State Park. I love fishing that area. Big Hunting Creek should be fishing well with this cooler weather now, too. You can head to Thurmont, Maryland and hit half a dozen creeks, streams and a lake all within a fifteen minute drive. Good brook trout fishing in that part of Maryland, too.

Virginia Trout Stocking Schedule Oct 14 2011

Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries

Whoops… too busy last Friday to post this. The trout stocking in Virginia is in full swing.

Nice tip from Murray’s Fly Shop in Edinburg Virginia regarding Passage Creek, and newly stocked fish tactics in general — “Bring along a few streamers like a Pearl Marauder or Olive Strymph, these guys need to swim around in the wild a few more days before they figure out mayflies and caddis are good to eat.” A friend of mine also has a dirty trick to fool newly stocked trout. He ties up a “fly” that resembles one of the food pellets they’ve been raised on. All’s fair in love and…
