Same story here. We caught a 5lb trout as well as others and ended up paying $100 or so. Never stepped foot in there again.

Default Trout pond

Yes the one in bolingbrook is still there. It is called hidden lakes. The stock trout in the spring and fall, and catfish all summer. There is also some small bass, perch bluegill and crappie. You can buy a year long pass that lets you take a limit every day. 2 years ago a caught a 3lb trout a 5lb cat and a 9lb cat all in 1 hour.
