A scheduled trout plant for a local lake at 5400' scheduled for three weeks ago was put in abeyance until December 5. It was not republished, and virtually no one knew about the actual plant. It was confirmed to me with a 100% certainly, along with the exact location, a 3000# plant of triploids in a lake that can easily be completely covered with a pontoon. Three of us fished the lake yesterday. One had fished the lake dozens of times and knows every holding spot, the techniques, and the flies that work. Another did not know the lake well, and I am somewhere in the middle, having netting around 50 for three previous trips this year. Between the three of us, we brought three or four fish to net in three hours+ of fishing. Not only was there no one else on the lake, there was probably no one within five miles of our launch site, which was closed. We managed to work around that;-) While fast stripping a streamer is "always" the best technique on this lake, all fish but one were hooked by slow trolling. Locations were very random; there were no particular structure or depth constants. Lake water temp was 42 degrees, winds were 10-20 mph. The raceway temp in the hatchery from where the fish were taken was 54 degrees. Lake depth ranges from very shallow to 40'. We fished all levels, down to 30', and made several fly changes from streamers to nymphs. My speculation is our failure was due to the WT being a good 10 degrees below the preferred temperature range of the fish, and that as they had only been in the water for four days, and were not feeding or active because they had not acclimated to the colder temperatures. If correct, this taught us a big lesson in chasing recently dropped truck trout in colder water during the winter. Would you agree with this speculation?
