    I fished this winter lake in the past during the catch and release season and did quite well on trout up to 16 inches plus a few hold overs. Well I fished it Sat afternoon and Sunday morning and caught a few trout but a lot of bluegills also. Three years ago I never caught a bluegill. I hope they don't take over this lake and wonder if some one planted them there or they got in there from Brown lake.

    Since you have only fished it during the winter season before, the bluegills may have always been there, just not actively feeding during the cold water temps you previously fished in.

    Maybe not the biggest fish in the area but Green held some nice hold overs and had a good mayfly hatch. Had quite a few good days catching them on drys. I hope its not all over for this lake.
