Was getting off C.C. on Friday morning about 12 and the hatchery truck was on the west boat ramp unloading . . . .never seen that done before. Anyway . . .looks like there are a few trout in C.C. for now.

As much time as you spend on the water it's amazing you haven't seen them stock a load of those trout. It is interesting to watch and see the reaction of some of the fish, some go crazy trying to get away from the truck and some just swim slowly around trying to figure out what just happened.
Thatís one expensive feed truck there. Itís pretty fun to watch when they dump them in. Itís funny there will be reports of big wipers or walleyes being caught in lakes then next thing you know theyíre dumping 5k slimers in the lake. Wondering where they go.....
I fish at C.C. a fair amount and other than two or three spots on shore,you just don't see lots of Trout fisherman.Out on the water in a boat I don't see many if any people fishing for Trout . . . . .guess some get eaten by other fish.

Cherry Creek is a little bit of a mistery when it come to trout. I don't fish it much in the summer as there are just too many people and boats out there most of the time. I fish the fall and winter and some years the trout do very well and are nice size and good condition, some years not so much.You just have to go out and try it a couple of times to see what conditions are.
Denver Todd . . . .bell weight on the end of your line,egg hook on a snell about a foot above the weight and repeat with a second snelled hook about a foot above the other hook. Bait hooks with a few eggs and cast it out . . .let the weight sink to the bottom and tighten the line.Put the rod in a holder close to the water at a right angle to the line . . .tighten till the line is tight . . . .wait.
I learned that way of catching Trout when I was 7 or 8 years old by watching a guy at Washington Park.It worked real well back then and still works now.It will work with "power bait" and most other baits Trout like.My favorite bait is "Pautskis" Green label salmon eggs.This set up work very well in most lakes the CPW stocks with Trout. You don't need to swing your rod like a baseball bat to set the hook,just lift and and reel a bit.
