Fighting a cold here; hate it knowing that trout are biting in our area - North Texas and Oklahoma. To make matters worse, our friend in Australia sent a couple of reports of trout biting in Oz! Even sent pics; added them the bulletin board ...Post.

Got some updates on trout fishing at Turner Falls (delayed), Medicine Park, OKC, and Flower Mound (TX)! May be of interest to some in Oklahoma and the DFW Metroplex. Still fighting a cold but hope to at least get outside one day... weather permitting! Post.

Rain delay but let's talk fishing... for stocker trout! Post.  Hoping the rain lets up tomorrow and this cold gets better. New pond in a city just down the road was stocked Thursday. Hope to try my luck there... even better there were two other ponds in the same city that were stocked, too!

Made it to a pond just down the road from us. New place... so new that Google Maps does not show the pond. It looks like it is still being built. Regardless, there is a pond, and it was stocked with trout.
 
Overall, the bite was steady with lots of folks getting bit. Power Bait and Corn seemed to be working; did see several taken with fishing flies but could not tell if anyone had strikes with other lures. Was not able to get them on fishing flies... broke down and put on a PBRG (Power Bait Rainbow Glitter) in size 14.
 
Fun time...! Post.

Checked out three ponds that were stocked with trout from a city down the road. Tough round but did get four trout Saturday at one of the parks. Three went for an inline spinner and one went for a Near Deere.  Post.

I am a die hard angler ... but I don't want to die "hard" ... as in frozen.

 

Last year, I did some fishing in those colder temperatures.  It's fun when the fish are hitting ... but I'm like a little kid when they aren't.  

"Is it time to go, yet ???"

It was cold! Tried to fish a little longer but gave it up once the Cormorant showed and started feeding on the trout, and when I could not feel my fingertips. Lol!

Made it to a small pond that was stocked with trout last week on Friday. Started out slow until we found the pattern. Two of us limited out on trout... fun times! Friday's Video at Waterloo.
