Stocker rainbows, crappie?

Fished Palmer Lake today mid-day. Caught a dozen or so stocker rainbows 8-12 inches. Really nice day with only a few people on the lake. I heard some folks talking about crappie in there. I have only ever caught bluegill and rainbows. Has anyone caught any crappie in Palmer Lake?

According to the biologist I spoke with and as far as I know, no crappie in there. You've caught what is being stocked there. Before it was drained, there used to be pike but those are long gone also.

Ha I was there yesterday morning. No crappie. Trout, bluegill/sunfish, Golden shiner are all that are supposed to be in there. Cory was telling me last fall that there were talks of putting in some bass in there but I donít think that ever took on. Im honestly surprised a pike hasnít shown up in there yet.

More than likely someone who doesn't know their crappy from a bluegill?

That's about what I figured. I kind of just assumed they misidentified the fish. Crappie would be cool in there. Bass would be even cooler. I don't know if they would balance well with the trout though. Thanks for the replies!
