This is a tentative schedule.  Weather or break-downs could cause a shuffling of the schedule, but this is our best plan right now.

I have posted suggestions on fishing techniques, how to clean trout, and how to cook ’em in previous blogs.  If you need more information on that, go HERE!

I mention this every time I blog about the put & take trout stockings.  I am going to mention it again, and judging from many of the calls I receive about these stockings, I need to. . . . Yes, these fish are stocked with the expectation that folks will harvest them.  That is what we want.  We especially hope that kids and beginning anglers get to catch most of them.  We are NOT stocking these fish for experienced anglers to fill their freezers.  Find a kid and take ’em fishing!
